On September 15, 2016 Regions Bank announced that Bibiana Gomez, a Commercial Banking Relationship Team Administrator, is the September 2016 recipient of the Regions Bank Better Life Award. The Better Life Award is the top honor given to a Regions associate for outstanding dedication and job performance as well as exemplary involvement and commitment to the community.
Gomez is originally from Bogota, Colombia. She moved to Alabama in 2000 as an international student at Jacksonville State University. This past June, Gomez became a naturalized U.S. citizen.
“I’ve lived here for 16 years, waiting for that moment and it finally came,” Gomez said. “The first time I sang the National Anthem, the meaning of every word rang true. The meaning of every word of the Pledge of Allegiance came alive the first time I said it, and the meaning of every word of my oath. The moment I was given that certificate of citizenship was among the proudest in my life.”
Gomez is also proud of her work as a mentor with Tampa’s Hispanic Professional Women’s Association (HPWA), a nonprofit organization devoted to enhancing the image of Hispanic women, sharing knowledge and promoting the value of higher education. Regions is donating $1,000 to HPWA on Gomez’s behalf.
“There is a great need to help professionals who come here from other countries, but have to take low-paying jobs because they don’t speak English,” Gomez said. “Through HPWA, we connect Hispanic women to resources to help them enhance their professional development opportunities here in America.”
