María Fernanda Joy Enríquez, Vega Baja, Puerto Rico Recreational and sport fisherwoman

“To all the girls who want to be fisherwomen: Never hesitate. Do it. Try it out. Getting caught by a fishhook is one of the first things that will happen to you. Don’t be afraid of that. This is a wonderful sport. You’ll develop many skills, especially patience. Children have lots of access to everything with technology, and fishing will develop that patience in you, as well as the idea of wanting to do something differently to get a different result.”
