Introduce Yourself: I’m from Colombia (Not Columbia). I’m 21 years old. I’m a happy person, always trying to make everybody laughs. I’m studying literature and I really love to write. I live in a town further from the capital of my country. At this moment of my life I have a really strong and wonderful relationship with the love of my life. What else? I love books, dogs and food. I’m fat, overweight haha but I have a lot of confidence. I would like to say more things but I don’t know what else to say hahaha. I speak English, Spanish and Portuguese.
Thoughts On People In The World?: What a hard question. I believe we all are citizens of the world. I don’t hate any country or any raze. I just think we all should be joined in a huge brotherhood. I admire each culture in each country, and I would love to know them all. I wish people could stop judging a country without know it from first hand. Everyone must travel and see what they are missing.
What are your inspirations & goals?: My biggest goal is to travel around Latin American, helping animals and children. I love to see the smile of a kid when they learn something new or when they start to asking about your culture. They had no evil, they ask so many rude things but they don’t realize it. Animals are angels in the world, we don’t deserve them, they are so pure and lovely. I think what inspired every day is thinking in my future kids and seeing my dogs playing and sleeping all day long.
How would you impact the world?: I had been impacting the world by rescuing animals, planting trees, teaching kids, but most important by traveling. When you travel, you learn to respect and to be tolerant. You must know your country, and you definitely should travel in your country. Also, I volunteering abroad
Struggles In Life? : Off course. I struggle with my self-esteem and with bad things that happened to me. I don’t a have a perfect life. When I was 9 I was rapped several times by some cousins until I was almost 15. Things like that can mess you up. With time, love and help I’ve become a happy and strong women
How do you feel about yourself? Any changes you would make? : At this moment of my life I feel perfect with me. I wouldn’t change anything, but I know I would be improving every day to become a better and more conscious person.
What does love mean to you?: Love means to not hurt but to listen. It means to hold your hand if things get bad. Means to don’t give up. It also means YOU. Self-love is the most important thing if you want to grow up. With self-love, you can conquer the world.
