When I first heard of Kimberly Guilfoyle, I’ll admit I judged her based on politics (as an Independent, both parties are fair game. Ha!) When I researched more about her, I realized that she was raised by a Puerto Rican mother who was a special education teacher. Her mother passed away due to cancer when Kimberly was 11. Despite her loss at such a young age, Kimberly later went on to law school, became a prosecutor, became an assistant district attorney in SF, then First Lady of SF, then she worked at Fox News from 2006 to 2018, and then became an adviser to the 45th President.
I read that as a kid, she tried out for a boys’ soccer team and made the team. I admire her go-getter attitude that has brought her very far. She works hard, no matter what you think about her politics.
The List wrote of her, “As an adviser to the White House, Guilfoyle has shown that with hard work and nurtured ambition, anything is possible.” #orgullohispano
Advice from Kimberly: “You better have thick skin, for sure, but you also need to laugh at yourself.” (Source)
