“We want to raise a girl who knows how to listen and understand before she acts,” Rivera Flores said. “We want to raise a wise woman.”
Before revealing the name, Rivera Flores added that it “has to do with the love, the connection that Jenni and I have.”
“I chose a name [Samantha] that I tell my sister, but its also one that she uses for me,” Rivera Flores. “We thought of a name that I can listen to every day, and also say it.”
Rivera Flores then got a little emotional and added that what she misses most is hearing her sister say her name.
“But now I can hear it everywhere,” she said.
