Biography

I was born in United States of America and raised in Colombia; I came to Montreal on the fall semester of 2016 after graduating with a bachelor in Psychology from CES University, Colombia. I started the Early Childhood Education DEC at LaSalle college this year. I speak Spanish, English, and I go to French clases twice a week to keep improving it. I decided to become an educator after having the privilege of doing a one year internship in a daycare as the psychologist, and realizing I really wanted to keep working in this environment but directly with children and their families. Early childhood experiences set the tone for success in all aspects of future and I want to be part of this process, by providing children with support, guidance, empathy, love and creating a safe and stimulating environment where they can develop socially, physically, emotionally and cognitively. I'm enthusiastic in my professional and personal life. I'm caring and patient with people of all ages and I really enjoy to get involved and collaborating with all staff members, which I also think is fundamental to maintain a positive work environment. In my spare time , I love to do different types of exercise such as dancing, boxing and cycling. I also enjoy trying different types of food, painting, watching movies and traveling around the world as often as I can.
