"My interest in education as a professional career started for real at carrying out the fieldwork in one of the largest and most dangerous slums in Colombia for my Master's thesis in international economics. During an adventure visiting almost 200 schools in Aguablanca, an area full of wonderful, constantly smiling people - which became more and more of a privilege rather than a research task - I discovered amazing opportunities (and great problems) that attracted my passionate attention.
It's difficult to explain how rewarding it is just to be present, showing that you care and want to work on helping to improve the situation. The hundreds of smiles and curious faces per day that met me truly received me as if it were meant for me to be there, that I had found my place in life, at least then and there.
