Protect all forests with me.

What I'm Leading

Growing up in Colombia between the rainforest of the Pacific and the cloud forest of the Andes, I always knew I was a part of nature. I am here to re-inspire this natural connection between people and Earth. The intense impacts of disappearing forests and climate change deeply touch my heart, and the threat of global warming will not disappear without significant, committed action. Our water, air, forests, and future generations are at risk.

To bring our planet back into balance, I will launch an environmental movement led by women. These activists will educate and mobilize their communities for environmental preservation and sustainability, and increase the number of protected areas in order to restore a healthy planet for all future generations. Women are key to protecting the earth: we understand that what happens in one corner of our planet is not happening to one lonely woman but to all of us.

Who I'm Impacting

Over 1,000 women indirectly impacting 100,000—all working together to sustain our planet.

Bio

About Me

A dreamer. A romantic. A woman. A mom. A daughter. A sister. A friend.

A sensible woman who grew up with a brother and my parents traveling to beautiful Colombian places, while my father wants to go fishing and showing us the beauty of my planet.

Graduated as graphic designer, and then as a photographer I started what it became my life project for more than 20 years. Sentir. To feel. An NGO where I grew up as a person, a professional and from where I could understand about endangered species. Endangered ecosystems. Endangered us.

Writer by passion. By love. By pain. By gratitude. Because life touches me. Because my body speaks to me. And I listen. And I can hear it. And it speaks me in an older way. In a way older than words. And I can not resist it. I can not be quite. I can not express it. I have to.

In love with trees. Because silently, they give us what we need to live. What we need to breath. And together in forest they resilience.

My Vision

To understand and help to others to understand importance of DIVERSITY for the planet, human kind and all the species.
