Biography: I grew up in a small district in the outskirts of Lima. When I was a kid, I helped my mother at the bookstore she owned before I went to school in the afternoon. She would tell me that the person that reads has the ability to go far in life. In 2010 I had the opportunity to join the only public boarding school in Peru, where I had the first taste of intercultural exchange with 900 students from every region of my country. Two years later I won a scholarship to study in Singapore, where I interacted and learned with 2,000 people from all over the world. I currently study Economics at Colorado College, and I feel fortunate that my experiences have made me understand the importance of visiting places, meeting diverse people, and being a team-worker in order to achieve a more connected world.
