CONNECTION FALL 2014 VOL. X, NO. 1 La Clínica sat down with 32 year old Amateur Boxer/Athletic Coach/Motivational Speaker and La Clínica Patient Dalia Gomez. Dalia's passion is energizing students, teachers, athletes and in- dividuals. Motivating others is her specialty. She was the first in her family to graduate from col- lege and has been on her own since she was a teenager. Dalia recouped a once lost basketball scholarship which ultimately led her to obtain a Bachelor's Degree in Sociology/Psychology. She is a USA Amateur boxer with the goal to win the National tournaments and soon turn pro. Dalia received insurance through the ACA enrollment and has chosen La Clínica as her medical home. Patient Profile: Dalia Gomez CONTINUED ON PAGE 6 6 The mission of La Clínica de La Raza is to improve the quality of life of the diverse communities we serve by providing culturally appropriate, high quality, and accessible health care for all. La Clínica: What age did you start boxing and what role does it play in your life? Dalia: I was 21 or 22. I started boxing again at 30 and it has been a major part of my life right now. It helps me stay pa- tient, humble and calm. Boxing is a metaphor for life unlike any other sport this one really is all about blood, sweat and tears. You can't wish for it; you have to sweat and work for it. In boxing you have to stay calm when someone is attacking you because if you don't, you can lose and make big mistakes.
