Yesterday, during the Second Meeting of Young Entrepreneurs organized by the Espiritu Santo High School, the current governor of Guayas, Viviana Bonilla, announced that she will be the next candidate for mayor of Guayaquil, for Alianza Pais party.
Bonilla improvised at the begining of her speech: “I was told I had to talk about the transfer between generations and my team had prepared super boring lines and when I read them, I thought this is not what I’m going to read to the kids, so I decided to tell you my life experience.”
The young governor highlighted her three biggest challenges. The first was becoming an Assembly member at the age of 25. Then, at 28, she agreed to be the Governor of Guayas, “the most populous and most important province,” and now she is running for mayor of Guayaquil.
“( … ) Imagine!, I am 30 years old and everything has happened very fast, without thinking of it, and I had no time to absorb what was going on,” she said.
Bonilla, who considered herself a country’s entrepreneurial, stressed on social prejudices on women and youth.
