Rosie was born of immigrant parents many moons ago. As a young child, they lived in a studio apartment (3 adults and 3 children). Their living room was their bedroom and their dining room. She never knew the definition of poor or rich, and never saw herself as any different than other kids. What she remembers most about her childhood was how hard her father worked, and how much she was loved. She never “thought” about how she was going to succeed, what her career was going to be—it was all about living in the moment, celebrating, and being part of her family.
Little did she know what life lessons were ahead of her.
