What can we say about Celina Zamora-Torres other than WOW GIRL. Celina is a constant reminder that your story and experience are what define you – from the weird jobs to the bad situations, it’s all a valuable part of growth and essential to gaining wisdom. We’re so honored for her to tell her story at Elevate Women!

What’s your day job?

Besides raising two little humans, I help manage and support all the Atlassian user groups in the Americas.

Why’d you choose to get involved in the Elevate Women’s Event?

My passion is helping bring people together, especially women. My life focus is to build an environment that will truly help women throughout all the transitions they face in life.

What was you biggest ah-ha moment as a woman?

When I had my first daughter. I knew that my goal of bringing women together was now my life’s purpose. My daughters have become my biggest teachers. They remind me to be present, to refine my focus, to live with gratitude, and to choose my battles.

What do you wish you could tell your younger self?

Be kind to yourself and find beauty in the madness. Life is hard, but with the trials and obstacles that come your way, you’ll grow to appreciate yourself more. Your skin will become thick, your definition of love will shift (MANY times), and your tribe will become your lifeline. Find connection with your spirituality, no matter what that looks like. Dive into it, especially if it fuels your spirit and provides clarity. Own your story—that’s what makes you unique and beautiful. It’s what connects you with others and also sets you apart.
