I was born in Colombia,I grew up in Switzerland and I am currently a senior in Boston University's College of Communication. I strongly believe that the personal is political. Although this belief originated from my family's history of contributing to the promotion of equity and decreasing poverty in Colombia, it is my academic experience that has made me an advocate for human rights around the world. My work towards my degree in Public Relations and Women's studies enables me to effectively stress the importance of the promotion of gender equality and the empowerment of women if we hope to achieve sustainable development.
