Por qué me convertí en humanitaria

Antes que nada, creo que todos tenemos una responsabilidad moral de ayudar al otro. Desde cualquier nivel y manera, pero es un elemento humano el de dar una mano al que lo necesite. Hay personas que lo dan todo aún no teniendo mucho, pero lo que dan es de corazón. Y eso es lo más importante.

Yo crecí viendo y viviendo desigualdad. Mi madre viene de un barrio humilde de José C Paz adonde, junto a sus cinco hermanos, creció con necesidades. Mi padre, en cambio, nació y creció en uno de los barrios mas ricos de Buenos Aires. Yo tuve un poco de los dos mundos. –

Give a child an opportunity and you have changed the world

In the last few years I realized I must work in what contributes to my personal sense of purpose and meaning.  I feel a responsibility, as a fellow human, to help others and that is what I am dedicating my life to. It has always been in my heart, why was I so confused? we just need to stop and listen to yourself. Although, it is harder than it sounds and we must deal with the many precepts of our family and society.

Journal of a Journey: My call

I always knew what I wanted. As many of you, I wanted to change the world. Nothing else, nothing more. With time, of course, I realized it was not such an easy task. That the world as a whole cannot be changed, it can only be understood. With time I also learned what I really, really wanted is for every child in the world to have the same, or better, opportunities as I did.

Of course this is an ambitious goal, maybe a bit too ambitious. But I tend to aim high.

Journal of a Journey: Day 3

In real time, I have been in Morocco for almost a week. But since time stops here it feels like much less. Although I am afraid time is passing by and I will have to leave eventually. I wish this time will never end, that I can wake up every day of my life in Marrakech and go buy freshly made warm msemen. Have a mint tea every evening while I watch the sun setting over Jemaa-El-Fna.

Today is Christmas Eve. And yes, I feel sad for not being at home with my family. But there is nowhere else in the world I could be but here.

This year has been particularly hard for me. At the same time, it has taught me so much about how strong and capable I am. It has also taught me that I have to let go of material stuff, because I have nothing at the moment and I feel so free. I also learned that my home is within me. That I feel stable and confident if I constantly move. I also remembered that love can change it all. I met so many people. Some of them I don’t ever want to cross path, others, I wish we can share the same path for the rest of this journey.

This year I have conquered the impossible. Worked full time and obtained two master’s degrees. All made possible because of the desire that drives me: to dedicate my life to those in need. To those children out there and, whom I believe, deserve the same opportunities I had, or better ones.

2019 is coming. With many new objectives, challenges, places to see and smiles to share. I can’t wait.

19 is my favorite number. 19 is Ka. Ka like the wind.

There will be water if God wills it (Stephen King).

Merry Christmas! 

With Love from Morocco ❤
