What determined Cristina to create Youniverse Revival community other than finding joy after her own divorce experience, was re-watching an old video of her mother from a family gathering – her last recorded memory – looked at the date and realized that her mother was exactly her age when she decided to take her life.
Her mom seemed to be utterly happy on screen, but was deeply broken within and could not imagine life without her soon-to-be former husband and father of her two children, which led to depression and determined her to see suicide as the only way to end her profound suffering.
“That event has impacted me throughout my entire life and having gone through a divorce myself after being with my former husband for 10 years, I got to discover how I could finally do something for others, since I was way too young to be a pillar of support for my mom or to even understand what was happening to her in those moments.”
Cristina strongly felt that it was time to devote herself to this purpose, as there is nothing in the world that could be more meaningful.
She resigned her management position while being based in Buenos Aires, Argentina, and took a plane to the island of the Gods, Bali, to create Youniverse Revival. Her vision is to revive the sense of purpose into people’s lives globally, cultivate more self-worth that grows naturally into self-love, and give a new meaning to life after separation.
“Instead of calling it separation, we can choose to name it completion. Completion of an old chapter that creates space for a new beginning, more meaningful than ever before. I believe we’re all a bit wiser now than we were yesterday and so, we can create new meaningful experiences by choosing to learn and shine more after every single challenge.”
