#Meetthefamily: Nieves, our dear #OneHappyFamily Mama. 
She always brought all of us together with a smile, her energy for the project inspired all of us. 

Please take a minute to read her important wish and message to all of you. 

My wish:
I know Im not the first one to say this, but its a common feeling among people in the field (or, like in my case, who have been in the field), I wish projects like One Happy Family werent necessary.
My message to you, reader:
As what I said above unfortunately doesnt seem likely to happen any time soon, Id like to see European citizens, like me, putting pressure on our local and national politicians and on those representing us at European institutions. Get yourself informed, see whats going on on our doorstep, and push for change.

Thank you Nieves for inspiring us everyday and being the person you are. We miss you!💛
