About Ana María
I am 35. Mother of Rosario and Rodrigo, unschooled (there are only 90 homeschooled families in the country so it has NOT been easy). I was married for 10 years and separated 5 years ago so I am in charge (financially and emotionally) of my home. I am a political scientist, Master in Education. I cofounded FEM (Foundation for multimensional education) with a group of friends in 2007. There, we work to empower communities and fight inequality (fiercely, philosophically, with actions). I work for a living at ACDI/VOCA Colombia. We are in charge of the Program for Afrocolombian and Indigenous peoples. I am a passionate, reflexive and upforward woman. I enjoy learning on my own. Colombia is a rough country: beautiful and contradictory. I consider myself to be a leader in the sense that leaders never get tired, we always keep on, and almost never let hopelessness seep in.
