Argentinean Paola Vottero came to the United States on a Rotary
scholarship in 1991, never did she think the United States would
become her home. A dual citizen since 1999, Paola is multilingual
(she speaks Spanish, Italian, Portuguese, and English) and in 1997
she started True Spanish, her Boulder translation business. This
paid the bills while she obtained a master's degree in English
literature at CU. Paola, who loves listening to electronica, jazz,
and tango, is the ultimate go-getter. In addition to running her own
business, she's also the editor of Salón Plus, a monthly,
Spanish-language U.S./Latin American Magazine. Clearly, this Latin
beauty doesn't sit still for long - she ran her first half-marathon
this past fall and has competed in triathalons since 1999. Her
perfect match will be equally driven and goal-oriented, but not so
much that he forgets his manners.
