“You’ve got to want it” – no words could be truer about life accomplishment. At 31, Otero has followed those wise words of her father through various challenges, including studying abroad in Spain, dabbling in politics on Capitol Hill and now in her role at the American Red Cross. “My mom and dad were never afraid to take chances, and jumped at new experiences,” she stated.

“Working in donor recruitment for the American Red Cross is like nothing I have ever done before,” she said. “It’s incredibly rewarding to know that through this line of work we really do help to save lives, and it’s so great to be able to provide opportunities for people to get involved.”

The death of her father a few years ago served as the impetus for her new motto in life: “Do your best every day and live with no regrets.”
