I am passionate about engaging with an international community full of diverse individuals. I am excited about international partnership and believe in the power of intercultural exchange. I hope that through bearing witness to each other's experiences and stories, we can humbly open our hearts and minds to learn and grow from each other. I truly believe that when women feel empowered and free to create change, the positive impact will move communities and societies. I hope to play a role in empowering women and girls from different corners of the globe, so that they may implement the change they want to see, amplify their voices to be heard, and feel free and safe to share their stories and proudly pursue their dreams without restraint. I love languages, and am passionate about social justice and gender equality, Latin American studies, and especially music and dance!
"There is a quiet courage that comes from an inward spring of confidence in the meaning and significance of life. Such courage is an underground river, flowing far beneath the shifting events of one’s experience, keeping alive a thousand little springs of action. It has neither trumpet to announce it nor crowds to applaud; it is best seen in the lives of men and women who do their work from day to day without hurry and without fever. It is the patient waiting of the humble ones whose integrity keeps their spirits sweet and their hearts strong. Wherever one encounters it, a lift is given to life and vast reassurance invades one’s being. To walk with such a person in the daily round is to keep company with angels." -Howard Thurman
More compassion, less division.
