Born in Colombia, Dr. Pérez Bustillo credits her success to the influence of her father, who was a translator for the United Nations in French, Spanish and English, instilling in her a love of history and language and to her mother's sense of aesthetics. Returning to Colombia annually, she was able to remain connected to her culture and her family. These experiences were the inspiration for Dr. Pérez Bustillo's novel, “Back to El Dorado,” currently awaiting publication. In addition, her passion for learning and fascination with human rights issues, especially those dealing with female empowerment, have been a driving force for Dr. Pérez Bustillo, and she considers her ability to promote
the female image in education and literature to be particularly fulfilling. Instilling these values in future generations, she raised both of her daughters bilingually, and she has a granddaughter who is fluent in Spanish as well. In her free time, Dr. Pérez Bustillo enjoys meditation, salsa dance, traveling, Kirtan, Latina American art, and world music.
