My integration in AIDGLOBAL comes in a transition phase between the end of an academic path in sociology and a more consolidated entry into the professional world, as well as to realize or experience a long-standing ambition: working in a non-profit organization. The academic path in sociology combined with AIDGLOBAL’s mission based on values focused on education for global citizenship, social inclusion, solidarity and collaboration led me to bet and pursue this challenging path.

From my perspective, the work of AIDGLOBAL in the area of education for global citizenship is based on a fundamental element in the (re)construction and fight for a more democratic, egalitarian and inclusive society: education as a tool that allows the construction of a future with more opportunities, greater awareness about the world and what surrounds us and a more awake look at “the other”, an “other” with diversified characteristics, experiences and contexts, but equal in rights and human dignity.

In my free time, I like it to be devoted to family and friends, nature, museums or galleries, concerts, second-hand fairs and upcycling.
