“I realized that my most meaningful success has come from financial self-reliance, and I want to ignite that same self-made mindset in the lives of young women, empowering them to achieve their own economic independence and live rich lives in every way,” Galán said. “Women are the growth-engines of our economy, and collaborating with Colorado State University and Coca-Cola will help shape the economic future of students and our country.”
