Bio: 
I consider myself to be what some would call an international citizen, in great part because since I was four years old my family and I have been moving around the world due to my father's work. Our first move was to Brazil, where I began to develop my interests for the natural world and also learn my first second language, Portuguese. Our second relocation was to the collection of Islands known as the Philippines, where I spent my early adolescence. This was perhaps the most important move for me and my family, as it exposed us to a multitude of different asian cultures, it was the first time I was placed in an international school and it is where I learned to speak English, my most proficient language. After this, we returned to Mexico, where I would be reintegrated into Mexican culture and reconnect with that part of my identity. A few years later, we moved to Switzerland, where I would learn to speak a bit of french and finish my high school education, after which I would go by myself to Canada (my current place of residence) to pursue a career in Environmental Science at the University of Toronto.
Volunteering Experience: 
I have volunteered at a couple of child, disabled and soup kitchen facilities during my youth in Brazil, The Phillippines and Switzerland, respectively. In more recent years my volunteer work has taken a primarily environmental approach, including tree planting in Desierto de los Loeones, Mexico, insect and invertebrate monitoring in Algonquin Park, Canada, and an internship with Nestle in Panama city developing a project to calculate the local brach's ecological footprint. Currently, I am looking for more volunteer work with an environmental approach, as this is what I have chosen to focus my career on.
