What professional moment or project are you most proud of?

I’m working on my own social impact startup called Trips4Change. My vision is to break the cycle of poverty in Central America by creating economic opportunities through education and workforce development.

I have a passion for innovation and I believe innovative learning opportunities for children and youth who don’t have access to education are fundamental. I already have a prototype and I am currently discussing partnerships.
