My higher purpose is to serve entities and projects with social impact. Passionate about not leaving this world without having discovered my light for the service of others. I accompany organizations to overcome their social impact challenges and achieve these types of goals using concepts such as shared value, sustainable development and the circular economy. I believe in the importance of rigorous measurement of impacts on projects that aim to contribute positively to a social problem, for which I have specialized in calculating SROI – Social Return on Investment, Theory of Change and Measurements for Objectives of Sustainable Development SDG (UN).
The quote that inspires me: Be the change you want to see in the world – Mahatma Gandhi
I lived 14 years in England working in media, for the financial and commercial areas. In 2013 I returned to Colombia and I turn my career around, starting my professional life in my country, in a foundation that uses art as a mechanism to develop a life project for children and youth in vulnerable populations.
My perception of reality and the needs of many communities in my country and in Latin America, arouse great interest in creating projects that manage to promote a better quality of life and a balance in society. From this I have full commitment to get involved in social responsibility and sustainability issues with high impact.
What inspires me: “What matters in life is not the mere fact of having lived. It is the changes that we have brought about in the lives of others that determine the meaning of ours ”Nelson Mandela”
Social Communicator and Journalist, with a master’s degree in Political Studies and an emphasis on public policy from the Javeriana University.
In my professional life, I have traveled different paths in the fight for the rights of women and children, black and indigenous communities, environmental rights, and, in recent years, for the rights of immigrants. I was fortunate to meet wonderful people, organizations, and institutions in my country that have allowed me to open new eyes to the world and develop new sensibilities. And more than a long professional life, I think I have been able to help others, which has been my best life experience.
What inspires me is knowing that today, from my experience in New York, I can say that life acquires meaning for the people with whom you interact to fulfill common goals, regardless of their origin, race, language, or religion, always that what you are looking for is to serve.

I am convinced, beyond any motivation of goodwill, that the investments made in the improvement of the conditions of our planet and of those who inhabit it are among the most profitable economically speaking. Not only those investments that lead us to correct inequalities or damages, but those investments that proactively seek to avoid problems
