Interview with Kristyn Saccoccia @kristynsaccoccia
Thank you so much for joining us! Can you tell us a story about what brought you to this specific career path?
I’ve been a motivational speaker and missionary for 14 years. I was buried alive as a baby in El Salvador in 1989. I was born at the war’s end in El Salvador; I was found in a coffee plantation “buried”. The newspaper put out an article to see if anyone would claim me, but no one did, and I was placed for adoption. Since then, I’ve been a motivational speaker. I’m also currently in the proses (pro brosqueda) of analyzing my DNA to see if I have relatives. The war in El Salvador was from 1972-1992. Can you share the most interest in what exciting happened to you since you started doing this?
Since being a motivational speaker and sharing my life testimony, I’ve had a few people reach out to me with similar adoption stories, even from the same orphanage. We stay in contact.
Which tips would you recommend to your colleagues in your industry to help them thrive and not “burn out”?
I would tell anyone to find time to have alone time. I’ve had to learn to decompress and take it slow. We all get so busy in our own lives and others we forget to take time for ourselves. Everyone needs time to recollect and gather their thoughts. I’ve been burned out so many times in the past cause I didn’t know how to slow down. I would overwork myself often, and I wasn’t my best.
None of us can succeed without some help along the way. Is there a particular person who you are grateful for who helped get you to where you are? Can you share a story?
I have actually stayed in contact with the people who helped my parents during my adoption process. Sam and Julie Hawkins are the owners of the love link in El Salvador, which help malnourished babies’ health get back on track. I talked to Sam Hawkins a lot growing up. I asked for advice. I asked for motivation to continue my journey discovering who is am and helping others on the way.
How have you used your success to bring goodness to the world?
I have taken multiple Mission trips to Haiti, Mexico and El Salvador. I’ve been a motivational speaker in many adoption/school / Christian concerts in Florida, Atlanta, and on social media.
Do you have a favourite “written Quote”? Can you share a story of how that was relevant to you in your life?
Have patience. I was buried alive as a baby in El Salvador in 1989. I was born at the war’s end in El Salvador; I was found in a coffee plantation “buried”. The newspaper put out an article to see if anyone would claim me, but no one did, and I was placed for adoption. Since then, I’ve been a motivational speaker. I’m also currently in the proses with (pro brosqueda) in A analyzing my DNA.
