What’s your story? 


I grew up in Frankfurt with a Peruvian mother and Portuguese father and moved to Amsterdam for my bachelor almost 5 years ago. My interest for urban developments led me to start a Masters in Spatial (Urban and Regional) and Environmental Economics last September. I am particularly curious about local initiatives which facilitate civic engagement in urban areas. Aside from other clichés, I like wearing colourful clothes and sharing new music.


Your favorite social/environmental project?

An initiative I like is CHIRAPAQ, Centre for Indigenous Cultures of Peru, an association which focuses on the promotion of the rights and respect for values, expressions, knowledge and cultural identities of indigenous people in Peru, within the framework of equitable gender relations.


Your guilty pleasure?

Listening to Romeo Santos and old school reggaeton.
