I have many interests: health, medicine, reading, psychology, meditation, yoga, cooking. My dreams: I have always dreamed of helping people in someday, I have always being drawn to different subjects, but they were all where careers that allowed me to be in contact with people.

My Favourite movie is Shaw Shank Redemption. I was born in Colombia, and adopted when I was 6 days old by an Argentinian diplomat family. After about 2 months we travelled to Copenhagen, Denmark, I lived there until I was 2 years old. My family and I travelled to Buenos Aires (Argentina) I stayed in the country until I turned 5 and then moved with my family to Tokyo, Japan. There, I attended the International school of the sacred heart, until 1996. I moved to Buenos Aires, lived there until I moved with my family to Pretoria, South Africa in February 2000. I finished high school in 2002. In 2006, I returned to my home country Argentina. Though I’m glad to be back, I find I haven’t settled as well as I have in the past when I was younger. Since I was quiet young I attended meditation workshops. I don’t know what to say except I’d be delighted to be given this opportunity, I’ve always dreamed of an opportunity like this.
