My name is Maria Lora. I own a Bridal Alterations Shop in Deltona FL. I am a wife and mom to 3 amazing daughters - they mean the world to me and I'm determined to change the world for them. I am the 3rd Generation professional seamstress. My parents are both immigrants from Greece, and grew up too poor to afford any education. As a child my mom earned income for the family by working in a " sewing factory". They came to the United States in the late 1970's without knowing a single english word. They built an amazing life on hopes, dreams, entrepreneurship and sewing. Sunnera's mission to break the stats and create more successful female owned businesses is now the mission I am on too. I admire her drive and most of all that she gets to have it all without compromising family time.
