Introducing myself and my journal: I'm a lot of women

About Me:
When I introduce myself, I use to say "Hi, I'm María Fernanda and I'm a journalist". For me, it took just four years in the university to say I'm a journalist with proud and hapinnes, but my title now has an interminable history of the other's women effort -some of them already death- to become a professional in Costa Rica. So describe myself could not be possible if Bernarda Vásquez would not have been the first woman to vote in Costa Rica, or Emma Gamboa would not have been the remarkable teacher she was, or Lara Rios would not have written "Verano de colores". Every woman who have been born in my country, every of them is my own history, although I'm just 24. Humberto Maturana says that all people are the same age, and that age is about millions of years.
So they -you- are my inspiration to wake up every day, wear my high heels and explore, interview, write and describe the other great women I meet. Every little profile I write for Perfil magazine, every little text I write up for my facebook page of my own blig is because I have their -your- uplift.

My Passions:
writing, reading, dancing, yoga

My Challenges:
travel, write for the change

My Vision for the Future:
The future is beginning now, there is nothing no wait for the change

My Areas of Expertise:
Writing about social issues, especially sexual inequality
