My Panama Canal: Verónica Will
Verónica Will captains one of the immensely powerful tugboats on the Panama Canal that guide the huge merchant ships through the narrow waterway.
She is only the third woman to hold such a post since the canal opened a hundred years ago.
"I feel proud to work on the canal," she says. "The canal was built by thousands of immigrants, and I am part of that history. I am here working on what they thought was only a dream."
