Jennifer Aponte shares how she overcame incredible odds and urges her daughter and all those growing up alongside her to "live like you were dying." Jennifer Aponte has held many legal titles in the Puerto Rican government, but that does not define her. She has overcome a tremendous amount of obstacles in nearly every aspect of her life. She is a survivor of life, an advocate for empowerment and a defier of odds. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.
