Vero Lozano’s speech when winning the Martin Fierro for best magazine (Telefe)
In February of this year, Verónica Lozano fell seven meters from a chairlift at a ski center in Aspen, United States. After undergoing complex heel surgery, she began a recovery schedule of a minimum of ten weeks. The driver faced the situation with a positive attitude and kept her willpower as her flag.
Lozano suffered a fracture of both ankles, and a few days later she underwent surgery in Colorado. Back in Buenos Aires, she began rehabilitation, first with orthopedic boots, then with bandages and finally, after the stitches were removed, she was able to wear slippers again, although always without supporting force. “Patience, joy, gratitude, love” were the four words with which she described her feelings when she saw how her feet were healing over the last few years. A few days later she went back to work and little by little she was recovering her daily life.
