ABOUT ME

Hi everyone!!!

Im a lawyer, a dreamer, an adventurous and a passionate woman. I consider myself as a respectful, warm, funny, reliable and cheerful person. Im proud of my culture, I really enjoy showing it to foreigns. Traveling is my pasion!

According to a recently released poll by WIN/Gallup International Association, Colombia is the happiest country in this crazy planet. And since Barranquilla is the happiest city in Locombia, we are the happiest city in the world!!! I was so lucky to born here! Shakira and Sofia Vergara (Modern Family, ABC) were born here too and they are our joy and pride!

My city is well known bc we have the second biggest carnival in the world. The UNESCO, in Paris on 2003, declared it as one of the Masterpieces of the Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity because our carnival has traditions that date back to the 19th century.
