Statement: I am passionate about the visual arts, especially photography. I am currently enrolled in the sixth semester in the Fine Arts department at the University of Antioquia in Medellín.

In addition to my personal creative production, I am also doing social work with the organization Ilduartes in Bello, the city neighboring Medellín to the north where I now live. I share my knowledge with children and young people in vulnerable situations, facilitating their exploration of creative fields which helps to distance them from the conflicts that are part of their daily reality.

What I enjoy most is documentary work, as well as photographing nature and abandoned architecture. I love animals as much as traveling. My dream is to eventually travel the world, documenting it and to live in order to show it!

Thank you for helping me to have the equipment necessary to achieving this dream!
