Although I never felt at home in Sweden, once asked where I felt the earth is calling, I realized it was in the mountains where I was born. When I was six my family moved to Uppsala, a university city in Sweden.
My first year in school I was elected class representative for the student council and soon learned about student rights and that if you just get involved, you can create change.
We need for the youth and politicians to meet and talk to each other.
My high school reflected well the the social problems caused by segregation, inequality and racism we were thought did not exist in Sweden- and I decided to make change outside the walls of my school.
In Kenya I realized working for a better world could be a profession... In Sierra Leona I learned to accept my privilege as a tool in that quest.. In Colombia I found my home in the world... In Thailand I found my home inside...
The injustices of the world became more evident as muy travel-spirited mum traveled with me and my sisters...
I decided to study Political Science and Peace and Conflict studies in order to make greater impact. I always loved to study and to learn.
But as soon as I graduated I went back to Colombia, and I have worked with peacebuilding since.
Super héros really do exists!
Today I work with the Kroc institute and monitor the implementation koi the peace agreement in Colombia, and developing a method for how to measure the transversal ethic approach - facilitating spaces for inclusive social dialogue is still at hart of everything I do.
