“I was born in Bogota, Colombia and I moved to the US in 2007. I have always enjoyed helping others and finding new ways to be creative, some of my hobbies are photography, traveling, and playing billiards. I found out about Isla Urbana in 2015 when my high school club, Junior World Affairs Council, needed to find a non-profit to support, and we chose Isla Urbana. Since then, I have tried to stay involved by attending the summer program in Mexico, where I got to see the water crisis problem first-hand, and build rain water harvesting systems for schools. Currently, I am leading a collaboration between Isla Urbana and Partners of the Americas to expand the summer program, so high schoolers from all of Latin America can experience what Isla Urbana is about and show them how they can get involved”.
