About Me

Trainer in leadership, gender, human rights and interculturality. Founder of "Escuela de Lideresas" a social initiative for citizen education in women rights and community prevention of violence against women and girls. I do research and lecturing in gender studies. My work in this field makes the difference in linking community and academia in the production of knowledge.

I love writing. My writing aims to make visible the struggles, life stories and contributions of the women of the Global South with their diversity. My articles have been published in Global Press Journal, The Huffington Post USA, United Explanations, Women News Network and Furias Magazine of Argentina. I am currently a columnist at Huffington Post Spain. I like books, traveling, walking in the woods, oriental dances, cactus, autumn and afternoon rain. I appreciate the beauty of everyday life and keep my capacity for wonder alive. I believe in the power of Resilience. I am a woman in constant learning.

My Vision

Gender Justice, Non- Discrimination and Free Choice.
