*After writing about my biography and reflect about the years and opportunities my favorite principle is “Giving back” I was so welcomed to this beautiful community who gave me the opportunity to grow, learn and succeed that I made a commitment to give back to those who had help me and to continuously building a bridge between organizations and those who may need our support, volunteering, working or advocating. That’s my way of returning all the blessing, gracias~!
