Communication and Education Coordinator
I am at Sunseed with the motivation of learning and living simple in a low impact way and to be part of an International community. I am inspired to share, grow and enjoy life with others. Since I was 18 years old, I have travelled to many places in the world searching for alternatives ways of living. I have been in Peru, volunteering for an educational project with children at risk of social exclusion; in the Sahrawi refugee camps helping/collaborating in different projects such as working with AFAPREDESA (Association of Sahrawis Prisoners’ and Disappeared People); in Austria studying the Master of Peace and Conflict Transformation at the University of Innsbruck; where I was also part of the working team of Native Spirit Camp, an International School of Life and Nature, where Indigenous, aboriginal systems & universal, spiritual practices are shared.
These were huge moments in my life. They strengthened my sense of responsibility and showed me the importance of living more naturally. I realised that living more austerely, and content, having clear social and ecological values is a way to influence peaces in the world. This is why I am so excited to be at Sunseed, working locally to communicate change. I am here moved by the potential transformation towards harmonious relationships, to our environment and to Mother Nature.
