I was born and raised in Miami, Florida. I graduated from FIU with a B.A. in Psychology and I am passionate about philosophy and education.
I love breaking down large abstract concepts into manageable pieces for others. I share a sense of accomplishment when a person finally gets a concept that they have been struggling with. Yet, our relationship with knowledge should not end there. I ask myself; what are the consequences of the emergence of this new information or idea, how will it affect it's intended field, how might it affect other fields and finally what might the world look like when this information or idea is so common place that we take for granted it's contributions.
But what about old ideas...Why was the current idea implemented in the first place, is it still a valid solution, is it even still the same problem, is there a better solution, can the current idea be improved or should it be replaced altogether, and if so with what, and finally can the old idea provide an effective solution for a new or different problem?
Truly, tackling these kinds of problems bring me the most happiness, even if they are just hypothetical. Still I would love the opportunity to implement these skills where they could do the most good, in the work force.
I take pleasure in bringing together seemingly unrelated pieces of information to create something new. I take pleasure in tackling problems from a logical standpoint and always take into consideration morality and ethics in the process. I love transforming knowledge from something we just comprehend into a formidable tool that that can be used at ones discretion in everyday life. That is, after all, the point of learning. Isn't it?
