World citizen, with a strong experience in South America, I have resided in 6 countries so far, and plan to keep on moving. I am keenly interested in transformation of educational processes using technology as a lever. I have been part of the Ecuador Wikimedians User Group since its inception (2013), as the education program specialist, and am a firm believer that “Knowledge is as wings to man's life, and a ladder for his ascent. Its acquisition is incumbent upon everyone.”
Originally trained as a psychologist, I’ve been learning about community development through development projects and volunteer service. The overlap of my interests in education, technology and community development now finds a particularly interesting expression through my work at the WMF, where I can now serve by enabling a global community’s efforts towards the “growth, development and distribution of free, multilingual, educational content, and to providing the full content of these wiki-based projects to the public free of charge”.
