The El Paso Museum of History invites the public to attend a new lecture series, Focus on Perspectives, with the honorable Consul of Spain in El Paso, Martha Vera.

Vera is an avid Argentine tango dancer and a Coloratura Soprano.
Vera holds a Master’s degree in biology and biochemistry, serves as the Honorary Consul of Spain in El Paso, is President of the board for Pro Musica, and is a member of the board for the World Affairs Council.
