  Mr. POE of Texas. Mr. Speaker, since her days as a little girl in 
Argentina, Cristina Didone (Dee dough ne) dreamed of a new day owning a 
   Although she loved her homeland she looked thousands of miles away 
to the land of real opportunity--America.
  Like millions before her she yearned and worked to come to America.
  Even though her visa was denied three times she pursued her American 
dream and eventually a working visa was granted.
  Once in the United States in 1990 she created a business involving 
her two passions: the Law and English.
  So she started Kansas City Translations a firm specializing in 
training individuals in legal interpretations.
  Finally in 1999 she got to Texas as fast as she could and created CD 
Language solutions--a Global legal translations company in Houston for 
oil, gas & technology firms.
  Just recently Cristina was recognized by the Hispanic Chamber of 
Commerce as Hispanic Female Entrepreneur of the Year.
  As we get ready to celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month I would like to 
recognize this successful and tenacious American businesswoman that 
believed in herself and America.
  And that's just the way it is.
