Interview with Limara Meneses Jimenez (@limarameneses)

Thank you so much for joining us! Can you tell us a story about what brought you to this specific career path? 

I discovered that I have the talent to express myself in many ways beyond my personality and also that communicating with others comes very easily to me.

Can you share the most interesting story that happened to you since you started doing this? 

My first project as an actress was like a call from the heavens. The character that I played was the spouse of one of the best international singers during the 40s-50s named “Bartolome Maso Moré” (Benny Moré) and this man was a friend of my Grandparents and my father was born the same day as Benny and was named after him Bartolo. I was only 16 years old when by chance I went to the audition, seeing myself surrounded by very important and well-known actresses did not cross my mind what was about to happen, after hours of audition they made me one last call to tell me that I would be the actress who would play the character. On October 1, my birthday, I was given the greatest gift and responsibility I had ever had, the script for my first movie. From then on my life changed completely from being a simple actress in search of a character to being Limara Meneses the actress of the moment. There are things in life that we are not able to understand, this story is one of them. Too many coincidences? No, I would say it was predestined to happen.

Which tips would you recommend to your colleagues in your industry to help them to thrive and not “burn out”? 

Colleagues and friends, be constant, curious, meet and look for life stories, do not hold on to anything, let everything flow, let go, accept the NOs and forge a castle of Yes, but a yes of growth for the next step. Prepare your body and your mind, embrace your reality, and accept it, interpret the silences and storms that surround you because that is where creativity is. Do not look outside, and do not look guilty, everything you need to achieve your goals and not burn yourself it is within you it is in your environment create awareness and go for it.

None of us are able to achieve success without some help along the way. Is there a particular person who you are grateful towards who helped get you to where you are? Can you share a story? 

If I am going to talk about a specific person from the beginning of my career I cannot say a single name I have had the support of many people in each step of growth in my professional career the first ones are my parents who were always there from minute one later I had friends who introduced me to the path, she was Thalía Veloso and other friends Alegnis Castillo and Judith Gonzalez who supported me during my studies at the University so that I could carry out my professional work and well throughout my life. Well, I also met Rosa Marquetti that supported me to be the actress of one of the most important and internationally recognized works, Chico y Rita. When I meet my husband, from then on I can say that he is the person who has given me the most support today to achieve all the goals and objectives that I am achieving right now, if I am going to define all that I said with him the name of a person, it would be my husband. Ten years ago, he is the person who has believed in me and has given me all the tools to grow and not only professionally but also spiritually, emotionally, and as a human being that somehow when you have these three well-founded elements, success is added.

How have you used your success to bring goodness to the world? 

Using my influence on social networks, I have created a platform in which I listen, support, and give a voice to mothers, through successful colleagues who have an important social reach from conversations where we analyze, highlight, influence and share from our experience the path of motherhood in today’s woman from all perspectives. This has led to the uncovering of that pressure valve imposed by society when it comes to the voice of mothers and creating awareness in the minds of these mothers where understanding, solidarity, and generosity have begun to emerge.

Do you have a favorite “Life Lesson Quote”? Can you share a story of how that was relevant to you in your life? 

I am an immigrant mother of three daughters. I have been able to discover the complexity of this wonderful process and at the same time the courage that gives you knowing yourself alone and the need to move forward and create the foundations for a solid and healthy future so that they become conscious and consistent people. In the middle of this process where I have seen myself countless times sigh deeply, the phrase that saves me is just this. “Ser mamá es… De Mother!”
