About Me

Currently doing a specialization on vaccine development in France. Passionate about traveling, medicine and adventure. Often a rookie musician, frustrated writer and compulsive reader. Very interested in psychology, medicine and literature. I enjoy dancing, sports and going out, specially to explore the nature. I'm very spontaneous, a dreamer but not a fanatic and I don't believe in radical ideologies.

Grant us one more hour,
To perform our art
And perfect our lives"

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

One day I woke up, bought some flight tickets and started traveling with a 30lts backpack. No plans, no time line, no limits. In 9 months I visited 50 cities around Europe, north Asia and Russia. I did it with a tight budget, small amount of stuff and hitchhiking most of the time.

I helped to found a non-profit that provides free medical attention in the rural Guatemala. He-he.org

I attended 17 deliveries at the hospital during a 36 hours shift.

Working as volunteer with school children, orphans and disabled people in Sierra Leone, West Africa. First-things.org

Being the only Guatemalan who lived in Sierra Leone during 2018

Being the first Guatemalan who crossed the Vale border between Georgia 🇬🇪 and Turkey 🇹🇷 hitchhiking

I met the Orthodox Christian Pope and Patriarch of the Great City of Alexandria and All Africa Theodore the II and he sang me the happy birthday!

Many others!
