I decided to join this platform because I think that the only way for the Globe to survive is if powerful women (that is, most women) get together, learn from and support each other, share their ideas, dreams and knowledge.
I am a woman from the Andean Region. I was born, raised, educated and have lived most of my life in Quito, the capital city of the Republic of Ecuador. I decided to study law when I was 12 years old. My dream was to attend Harvard Law School, and I was able to pursue my LLM degree there, back in 1995.
Both my legal background, and my Harvard experience, led me to a series of interesting experiences.
I have always loved networking, and I think I am good at that.
In looking at some ways of describing myself, from a professional point of view, I would say:
Networker, Manager, Legal Counsel, Trainer, Facilitator
I am open and ready to meet, both virtually and in person, all the magnificent women that are part of the virtual community.
