A World Leader In Our Midst.

Cristina Quisbert would like to be an influential world leader if she could be anything she wanted. As a person, and possibly as the influential leader she could be some day, Cristina would make sure that ancestral knowledge would be shared among people of the world so that solutions can be found to situations that confront humanity. As a world leader, Cristina will take people and their cultures into consideration as she considers her greatest success in life to be “to have been able to know about other cultures, to have been able to meet and know about other members of other indigenous peoples in my country and other countries”.
Cristina believes in Friendship so much that it is the one word she would use to describe herself. Cristina cannot stand all types of injustice. Even before becoming a part of world pulse, Cristina who was born in Laz Paz Bolivia, had been interested in a career in journalism. She believes that to become a good journalist, she must first undergo training and practice. She also hopes to use journalism as a tool to share aspects of indigenous culture. Cristina can express herself in both English and Spanish. She loves Quinoa soup and the colour blue. She loves blue “because it is a color that conduces to tranquility, it is also a color of the rivers or lakes and the sky too.”

Insightful interview

Ayo, this is a wonderful testimony to what motivates and inspires Cristina. You have given us a glimpse not only of what drives her in her work but the spiritual side of Cristina that loves the colour blue. I enjoyed learning more about Cristina and how her cultural heritage is such a part of everything she is and does. I look forward to reading your next interview.
