An idea worth spreading
For societies to progress and be peaceful, ALL people, must have the unalienable right to a dignified living be it through a decent education, work and workplace, salary, and a sense of self worth that allows people to be equally important, be it a janitor, a teacher, a CEO or the president. As a society we are all important, we all have a place to fill, the whole world wouldn't run if we all were doctors or lawyers or popstars. Respect, tolerance and appreciation of each other's role in society is key to achieve harmony.
I'm passionate about
Science, technology, education, books, music and human rights.

My TED story
I stumbled upon TED casually when I was browsing youtube videos of James Watson (discoverer of the DNA structure). I was instantly attracted to the talk and was intrigued by the TED sign on the stage and before I knew it I had already binge-watched over 12 talks. A couple of years later I learned about the Open Translation Project, I had recently received my diploma for specialized translator and decided to put my recent techniques to use. It got me hooked. Afterwards I joined several of the organizing TEDx teams in Mexico City (TEDxIztapalapa, TEDxMexicoCity, and now my own University TEDxUNAM) and now I feel the incredible satisfaction of integrating TED into my everyday life.
