A woman from a developing country striving to become a better self to be able to unscramble the problems of her world and propose expansive solutions that break regressive ways of thinking and living. I do this by bringing together my interest and love for engineering, science, social entrepreneurship and books. Convinced that lazy thinking causes lies, lies cause passivity and passivity causes the problems within and outside ourselves.
My Vision for the Future
I envision a world without frontiers, where the connections and understanding between individuals from different countries are more powerful than the ambition of governments and individual organizations. So powerful that communities can be weak without being abused or taken advantage of. So powerful that every community can grow freely and healthy and seek help outside anywhere in the world knowing that the message will be understood and respected and that collaboration will be received.
I envision global teams of profesionals working together and supporting each other in the solution of the problems at their communities, becoming friends and learning about each other's culture by first hand rather than by secondary sources.
I envision a world with a massive amount of individuals better capable of inner-reflection and this being the greatest force behind the development of strong and solid ties with the external world.
I envision a world where we all can be one, where the talents of every individual are understood as fundamental to move all together towards a better status in life. A world where I can speak side by side with a poor boy about the solution to a common complex problem and, similarly, being able to hold this conversation with someone from a different race, gender, social status without need of wearing a special suit or of holding a ceremony to be allowed a word.
Finally, I dream that my parents' generation can see the change that is possible and realize that individuals CAN generate change by being frail and honest to each other. The greatest obstacle for growth always starts with individuals who give away their authentic being.
These are some of my wildest dreams, may I live to see them become a reality!
