I was born in Colombia, South America and grow up in a tropical island in the Caribbean. Later on, I moved to Pennsylvania and New Mexico. My background is very diverse: I am a scientist, a community activist, an entrepreneur and an educator. One of my passions is to create and tell multicultural stories in English and Spanish, I believe writing open a world for connections among our children and our communities by making the world a better place one day at a time, and one to one.
