Where in the world are you?
Medellín (Colombia), but consider myself a citizen of the world since I have lived in other places and travel a lot.
What stage of your career are you at?
New beginning. After founding MAKAIA (www.makaia.org) and leading it for 11 years, I have moved into a new role in the organization. We have hired an Executive Director and my new role is on partnership and business development and designing the long term sustainability strategy of the organization
What are you current challenges?
Design and implement the long term sustainability plan for MAKAIA. Also, communications. We do amazing, innovative, on the ground work, but have a really hard time communicating and showing our work to a global audience.
What gets you fired up about technology and development?
That it changes people forever. That is always changing and we need to change constantly as well, so it’s always pushing us into new ways of doing things. That our work is always different, life changing and rewarding.
Cats or dogs?
