I am passionate about
I have a wide range of altruistic pursuits, but they all fall under the
same theme: helping spread information and knowledge as to how people can
claim their rights, and in everything I do, I think of serving first. I have
chose several ways to do this, one of which is Model United Nations. I have
taught the subject as an elective at a predominantly hispanic charter high
school in Miami, Florida. I have also worked with the UN Foundation's Global
Classrooms MUN program for the past 6 years in efforts to engage inner city
students in exploration of international affairs hoping that this educational
opportunity will give them the life skills to become active global citizens.
This year I had the honor of serving as the Secretary-General of the 2013
Global Classrooms International MUN Conference at the UN Headquarters in New
York, where over 2,000 students from across the globe participated.
My upcoming projects include working to improve freedom of expression in Venezuela through alternative non-government owned media outlets, and denouncing other human rights violations in the country with international relations.
