I really appreciate being the first Peruvian woman who runs the Dakar, the first Peruvian woman who finished it, and that many women say: 'OK, we are achieving things, we will be united, if Fernanda can then many women can achieve things that were always denied to us or that we always thought that were not possible, but I hope the world one day will be so beautiful that we will stop talking about men and women and just talk about people. Everyone’s goal I think should be that, instead of highlighting things because of the fact that I’m a woman, highlight things by the fact that we are people with big dreams, but that can be fulfilled "
