Johana Restrepo - MMJ / Digital

Home Town:  Born in Colombia; moved to the US in 2002 and grew up in Stamford, CT.

Interests:  Enjoys New York City. After living in Colombia, Arizona and now California, I can honestly say there is NO place like NYC. It makes you feel right at home!

I enjoy hiking, working out and having some fun with my friends. 

Family:  I have a younger brother whose name is Jhonatan, my mom's name is Margarita and my step-dad's name is John. Everything I do, I do for them. My mom sacrificed a lot for us to have a better life and I never want those sacrifices to go to waste. She is very proud of me but she has no idea that I have more in store.

Professional/Personal Goals: My long-term goal is to be an anchor someday in NYC where I will be closer to home reporting in the city that stole my heart many years ago.

Favorite Quote: "All men dream, but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds, wake in the day to find that it was vanity: but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act on their dreams with open eyes, to make them possible" - T.E. Lawrence. 

Favorite Food: ALL OF IT!
