Getting to Know Pilar Garcia de Paredes,

FARTHEST TRIP YOU HAVE MADE

My farthest trip was actually to the US from Spain. My whole family went together to do a tour in the East Coast. We were amazed by the height of the New York skyscrapers, the history of Boston and the beauty of Maine and its nature.
I would have never imagined that a few years later I would end up living here!

FUN OR INTERESTING FACT ABOUT YOUR HOME TOWN

Although I have lived in different cities in Spain, I was born in a very cute town in the south called Cadiz. It is also well known as ‘little Havana.’ A fun anecdote is that when Pierce Brosnan was walking in Havana in the movie Die Another Day, it was not Havana…

IF YOU COULD BE ANY ANIMAL, WHICH WOULD YOU BE AND WHY?

I definitely would be a dolphin! Dolphins have a great sense of community. They travel and live in groups and they build long-lasting relationships. In addition, dolphins know how to have fun. This is a style of life we support at Bell Leadership.

WHERE WOULD YOU CHOOSE TO LIVE – OCEAN, MOUNTAINS OR WOODS?

A good fire with a cup of hot chocolate on the mountains and a relaxing morning walk on the beach is my ideal.

BELL PRINCIPLE YOU LIVE BY

There are so many…but if I have to pick I would say “People would do better if they knew better.” This underlines the importance of continuous learning and growing to reach our full potential.
