Lizzie Da Trindade-Asher, Peruvian Philanthropist, Activist And Entrepreneur


The Peruvian-born entrepreneur Elizabeth “Lizzie” da Trindade-Asher is working on relaunching Young Friends of Save Venice, a charity in New York City that helps restore and preserve the historical artworks and architecture on Venice, Italy.

“The Peruvian-born philanthropist and entrepreneur Lizzie da Trindade-Asher is inspired by the strong women in her life who have influenced her involvement in some of the most venerable causes”, said Alma Emprendedora Magazine in an article about this entrepreneur.

In it, they relate how Lizzie da Trindade-Asher delivered an impassioned speech to women graduates about the illusory idea of work/life balance at the 65thAnniversary of Harvard Law School admitting women students.

“Lizzie’s general philosophy has been that trying to find a sense of balance will always throw you off-balance. As a result, Lizzie throws herself into her philanthropic commitments, business endeavors and family time”, the magazine said.

Besides working with Young Friends of Save Venice, she makes financial contributions to the New York-Presbyterian Hospital/Columbia University Medical Center to support cutting-edge research and new techniques in the medical field.

She is married to Daniel Ezra, who works in finances, and they have their own charity foundation: the Asher-Ezra Scholarship Fund, founded in 2008.

Since arriving in America at the age of 12, Lizzie’s family have held strongly to their Peruvian roots and culture. Namely, together with her sister, Melanie da Trindade-Asher, they have crafted the ultra-premium, naturally distilled pisco, Macchu Pisco–cleverly named after Peru’s gem recognized as one of the new 7 Wonders of the World, Machu Picchu”, Alma Emprendedora informed.
