I am passionate about

Actions

Seeing how difficult the situation was and still is for many young members of the LGBT+ community in Colombia, made me realize that I could be a change agent. The way in which I decided to achieve that was by opening my own NGO that is called It Gets Better Colombia, where we help empower LGBT+ youth with inspiring messages that are widespread through social media and by providing free psychological assessment. What I try every day is to replicate all the key learnings from my NGO within my company, AB InBev, making it more inclusive, diverse and open to whoever wants to make a professional career in the company regardless of their sexual orientation, gender identity, religion or any other unconscious bias.
