Lourdes Ibarra embodies the term “survivor”.
A multi-awarded international humanitarian, she has seen up close strife and poverty – and herself has dealt with her own personal struggles – and survived. A death of a son, two kinds of cancer.
But she managed to rise above them all.
All these are documented in her book, Being Unstoppable: A Journey to Success; A Life of Journey and Adventure.
The three-part book details her journey starting from life as a college instructor, to her humanitarian work in countries like Sudan, Kenya, and Afghanistan, up to experiencing the pain of losing her son.
On Thursday, 11 March 2021, Lourdes will have a ceremonial launch of her book in time for the celebration of Women’s Month at the Little Farmer’s Cafe near Homesite Shawarma.
