I am passionate aboutAs a social worker and activist in overcoming poverty, Agenda for Development
and youth; I am passionate about working to close the social gaps that exist
in Colombia and Latin America. My biggest inspiration is the action that is
achieved by volunteering in social causes and the power to connect different
realities (like the informal settlement, where all the rights of those who
live in this places, are constantly violated). We can work together with
those who live in this conditions. I believe in the social transformation
through the actions regardless of the differences of sex, religion, creeds or
origin; and I believe faithfully that we are the generation that is
responding to the big problems of the world, because we are mobilize by the
causes that are even bigger than ourselves.
My inspiration is in those who know different realities and work to overcome
them. I believe in our youth, the youth that know's the power to make this
world a better place to live.
