The Bible Verse That Inspired Julissa Arce

Here’s the best part of her story! Inside the bathroom, not know what to do, she remember this powerful scripture in the bible! “Do not be anxious about anything,”which she says under her breath, also she repeats Philippians 4:6. “Do not be anxious about anything.” This scripture straightens her, she washed her face, and get back to work. But her banker colleagues didn’t decipher why she won’t get on board a plane to see her father. Julissa Arce simply informed them that her family will inform her about the development, and that she might be leaving tomorrow. She didn’t cry since she was on the private wealth management floor.



Other overachievers at Goldman Sachs had a good beginning. Some valedictorians while others were sons or grandsons of the company’s bankers. But Julissa Arce was an undocumented immigrant. Arce owed her Wall Street  bright career  to fake papers  she bought for a few hundred dollars even in a stranger’s living room,Texas. At Goldman Sachs,Wall street, she rose from an intern to analyst, associate, vice president, before becoming a director at Merrill Lynch. Because of  her bogus papers, she couldn’t travel to see her family when her father died in Taxco de Alarcón hours after the 2007 phone call, because she couldn’t have come back.
