About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Don't be affraid to live and love

ABOUT ME

I'm an hyperactive girl, I'm always seeing the good side of things, It doesn't matter if the world's falling, I always have a big smile.
I like very much children, of course working for them, for getting chances and making wishes reality. There isn't more that working with and for people it's the best way for contribuiting for a better world.
On the other hand, I like doing sports, reading drama, novels, essays, classic literature, cooking mexican dishes, italian dishes and mixes, meeting people from other countries, speaking about everything (books, movies,concerts, social problems, politic, national news, existencialism, culture, soap operas, etc.)
I dislike selfish people.
I love those days when you don't do anything for example stay in a hammoc on the beach :D

Nowadays, I'm working in the university in community development and animal welfare.

PHILOSOPHY

your actions make the difference, it doesn't matter about what people don't do, just think what do you and what can do for the other people, your good actions are like a treasure.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Meeting children who live on the sewers and come in there it was a little sad, but it's interesting how those children have courage for surviving in those conditions. Work with people who live in the Rubbish dumps, amazing for the capacity to give and receive knowledge from them and for them.

"Festival Musica Interna" Music festival in mexican jails without resources :)

Teach, Learn, Share

I used to teach about prevention of AIDS and illneses of sexual transmission also I was working with children that live on the streets and then I worked in the Ministry of Culture in Mexico city, with independent artists and comunities, I hope that the Culture arrives to all population, in that time I organized performance and children projects to the jails and poor communities for creating an special sense inside the people who apreciate the spectacles.
Nowadays I work in community development and animal welfare with a project with the University of Mexico and 2 foundations in England. I'm doing a project in the Rubbish Dumps in Mexico to understand the complex relation between humans and working animals and give solutions for both.
I learn new ways for surviving in this world full of inequality just with 2 words: patience and understanding.
