Greetings from Dubai.
I joined the TED community as a way to keep learning about the world we live in and about those that make a difference. I hope I can make a contribution and connect with people that share and challenge my views. I believe deeply in the power of communication, discussion and experimentation and TED is a great platform for that.
I started my professional life working for the Organization of American States in Washington, DC. I worked on issues related to border disputes, conflict resolution, confidence building, post conflict reconstruction and humanitarian assistance.
Four years ago, my husband and I moved to Dubai. For better of worse, I was unable to get a job in my field of expertise (or in any other for that matter). I have spent these years studying, reading and researching, specially issues related to the environment, renewable resources, eco-friendly designs, social work and philanthropy. I made an effort to ‘recalibrate’ myself physically, emotionally and spiritually. I have reevaluated my priorities and chosen a path for my present and future.
Last but not least, I also learnt how to cook …. Definitely!
I am passionate about restoring the environment and preserving it to future generations.
Anything and everything.
Ready to make one .... my aim? to make a good one.
