Heidi Cruz biography
Heidi Cruz bio is rather rich and interesting. She is American. Heidi was born in August 7th, 1972 in San Luis Obispo, California. Her father, Peter Nelson, and mother, Suzanne Nelson, were missionaries for the Seventh-day Adventist Church, as they were very religious. They are Christian and believe in pray. Her father is the dentist as Cruz’s grandparents and uncles were also close to medicine. Growing up, Heidi visited a great number of different countries with her father, mother and brother in purpose of parents’ missionary work. She travelled to Nigeria and Kenya with parents. She lived there for some time. Those were missionary trips. Heidi’s father is a dentist, mother — a former dental hygienist and her brother is a pediatric orthopedic surgeon now, who also does his missionary work.
Childhood of Heidi Cruz was not rather calm, like the other children had, because while her family was busy with travels, she and her brother were busy with their own business. They had to wake up at 5 a.m. every day, read their Bibles, played piano, attended school and baked lots of bread. Bread baking was their first and rather successful business. They made bread year-round in amount of 200 loaves a week. At the age of 6 Heidi was earning 150 dollars per week. To create a bread business was their father’s idea in purpose to keep his children busy and give them an important life lesson. This idea indeed taught them to value hard work. It was some sort of competition like Heidi told and remember that time. In some years later Heidi would spend her earned money from business for her first car and would pay for the first year of the study in college. She stopped making bread when she had graduated from the Valley View Adventist Academy in Arroyo Grande.
At the age of 12 Cruz had a political interest after she had read issues of Time magazine. Since that time she began interest in politic life. In 1994 she graduated from Claremont McKenna College, but during her study in college she also studied at the University of Strasburg. In 1995 she graduated from Universite Librede Bruxelles in Belgium and in five years later she graduated from Harvard Business School. All her knowledge helped her much in future life and career.
