Roxana & Rosalind Rotundo

We take this opportunity to share the Venezuelan’s Businesswoman words of Roxana Rotundo: “This recognition andopportunity that TVMAS is giving women in this industry is an initiative in which Amanda Ospina is a pioneer. She, as a woman, a journalist, and an able businesswoman in a printed medium in which the other magazine owners are men; shehas been able to maintain with innovative ideas, reliability and professionalism. I have respect for women who have managed to excel in an industry that began run by men and I congratulate Amanda Ospina for this wonderful idea and we are seeing it been replicated, and is being followed by other women, which indicates that her vision is correct and is paying off. My sister Rosalind and I were raised in a world where women, my mother and my grandmother were pillars of what we are today, and to them, we are grateful for having instilled in us that there is power in each woman. To all the men thathave believed and still believe in the work of women, we thank them because without their support the road would have been more difficult.”
