Bio: 
My name is Pedro Rivera, I was born in Ecuador but shortly after that moved to Costa Rica were I lived for 14 years. About 5 years ago, I moved to Colombia were I now study Industrial Engineering at Los Andes University. In the last couple of years many things changed in my life, wich took me to try new things and expand my horizon. While doing this I learned about different cultures and people around me. At first I was eager about learning, but the most I learnt the more I noticed they were not as different as I thought they were, they were just less fortunate. I believe that the kids are the future of a well sustained society and that’s why I chose education as one of my main focus. From building libraries, to teaching math. From playing soccer to giving the kids someone to talk with. I believe that a brighter future starts with a single act of kindness.
Volunteering Experience: 
My experience with social service is vast, ive visited different tribal communities in colombia and peru, learned about their traditions and their way of living. Ive helped build 2 libraries in the amazon rainforest. Even, volunteered to help elderly people and children at different institutions. Unfortunately I never had the chance to have a complete volunteer experience where my only focus was to help others, and where I could stay long enough to see the impact I created. This is why im looking to go beyond my comfort zone, and finally take that step.
Education: 
Currently studying Industrial Engineering at Los Andes university.
