Step Step Jump - Transforming Trauma to Triumph from the 46th Floor (Paperback)
Quintero's debut memoir combines riveting storytelling, compelling insight, and triumphant lived experience to bring depth and meaning to one of modern times' greatest tragedies, and beyond.
Raised by Ecuadorian immigrant parents in the Pacific Northwest, Quintero had always dreamed of pursuing her passions in the city that never sleeps. But she never imagined that experiencing the real life nightmare of one of the deadliest attacks on US soil would lead her down a path rich with history, heart and all that it means to be human.
Step, Step, Jump is named after the way her feet raced down the stairway of the Twin Towers on that fateful fall morning. It is also a life philosophy formed in the months and years that followed, a map of processing trauma and harnessing one's true potential.
