Though she had a long and successful career, Eva Bonilla was 66 years old when she discovered that she was born to be a tour guide. After retiring, Bonilla volunteered with the Fort Worth City International Board. She served as an ambassador to many international visitors that came to Fort Worth, and fell in love with giving tours. It was not until Bonilla visited an AARP workshop that she felt empowered to pursue her dream of being a tour guide.

Now, she owns her own tour guide company. Bonilla never thought that she would be in the position that she is in today, but AARP gave her the confidence to pursue her passion and pave a new path for herself after retirement.
