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.
