CI field reporter - Barranquilla, Colombia

I love music, good food and spending time with friends. Working for Children International for more than 14 years, my life has taken an interesting turn — I discovered a sensitive soul that was hidden within me. I've learned great lessons in the communities that I visit on a daily basis, seeing people who lack so much offering what little they have to help others. I've learned that humanity is the basis for true greatness.

One of my favorite quotes:
