About me

I was born and raised in one of the regions most affected by the armed conflict in Colombia, Cauca. This context and the different stories of the communities led me to focus my efforts towards generating opportunities for change and positive impact in my region and country. Since then I decided to develop different skills to be an entrepreneur with a social purpose.
I have four years of experience working in the social sector as an entrepreneur through the organization Get Up And Go Colombia, which I co-founded for the generation of social projects and activities, which contribute to the socio-economic development of communities affected by the armed conflict through sustainable tourism and social entrepreneurship. I am passionate about developing the potential of young people and the impact we can make if we work as a team.
