I wouln´t want to have to reject my chance for a better future. It´s only couple of dollars away for you to change my life! and others! See More

EVENT DATE Oct 01, 2014


My life was easy. I was a happy student of Archaeology and Anthropology in California... then one day, everything changed! I discovered a latent disability that forced me to quit my studies and my work and go back to Spain. I spent two years with medical issues, surgeries and a massive depression. Now, I am trying to refocus my life and I want to do it helping others that, like me, have problems adapting but still don´t want to stop trying and doing. I applied for an internship at the UN Department of Public Information and Outreach... and I was offered a position for 4 months!. I want to make this experience the first step of my life´s work for those who have not been so lucky. I am planning to continue my studies in International Relations, so I can work on global projects that will help more people.

I atill have some money saved and I´m taking on my kind family to support this opportunity which estimated cost is about $10,000 for which I would be truly happy if I could get just the half.

But money is not the only way, If you live in New York... and instead of money want to collaborate with a room for those 4 months... or part of them, you are also MOST welcome! Contact me, please...

For all you out there, thanks for reading... and please, remember: It´s not a better world, if it´s not for everybody!
