Claudia is our Ambassador in Monterrey, Mexico, and is a very regular meetup organizer in her city. She’s always ready to give a talk about PrestaShop! To reward her involvement and dedication, she has been chosen to be our Ambassador of June. We’ve asked her a few questions, check out her answers below.
Three words to best describe you:
Honest, trustworthy and committed.
If you were to write a book about yourself, what would you name it?
“There are opportunities everywhere”.
What is your hidden talent?
I really enjoy reading.
If you could travel anywhere right now, where would you go and why?
I would go to the Asian continent, because it has a very rich culture and is different from what I know.
About your country
What is your favorite local food or drink?
Enchiladas verdes. It is a delicious recipe: chicken tacos with green tomato sauce, cheese and cream.

Give us a fun fact about your country:
The instructions are not read in Mexico, we first try to do it and then review the manual to correct. It’s funny. However, the positive aspect is the creativity. I have seen many things solved in unimaginable ways.
What is your favorite PrestaShop store?
I like the style and colors of www.chiz.fr. This page is very well made. An e-commerce website must be simple and easy for the users. They need to quickly find their products and navigate through the site intuitively.
What opportunities does PrestaShop provide in your country?
Ecommerce is getting stronger in Mexico, and PrestaShop can help to consolidate this trend.
For merchants, it is an opportunity to geographically expand their business, lean the processes and increase their benefits.
For entrepreneurs, it is a way to materialize ideas. They are part of a special generation, determined to be successful.
For developers, it is a trusted partner to provide high quality services.
For everyone PrestaShop is a solution that will allow you to grow as long as you need.
What is your feedback on the new major version, PrestaShop 1.7?
The checkout page is very well made. It is one of the most delicate part in the sales process: customers prefer when it’s simple. As a result, merchants get the chance to get more conversions.
About being an Ambassador
What is your proudest moment as a PrestaShop Ambassador?
Being chosen Ambassador of the month is amazing. It´s a way to know everything is working well. More than recognition, I find satisfaction in helping people with their activities. I thank all the people who made it possible, who developed the software, the support community, the Ambassador´s Program coordinators and the users who believe in the project.
The Ambassador Program is a fantastic opportunity to share experiences, improve and find solutions. And it needs a lot of quality work from all involved people. I like very much being part of this.
What do you like the most about being an Ambassador?
I find the meetings very interesting. They are win-win situations. There is a satisfaction in helping people and I learn a lot from them. So, I think everyone comes out on top. Besides, the attendants have a lot in common. Some have found good alliances, resolution to their problems or useful information. It’s a very positive environment.
A last word?
Give a chance to PrestaShop. It’s a fantastic platform for e-commerce. Technology is a viable and significant resource for business. If you are involved with this brand, you must choose a solution that grows up with you. PrestaShop has two very strong points: an active community and constant technology updates.
Thank you very much!
See you next month ;)
