General Info

About me

Since I was a child I wanted to be a doctor and cure people. I was inspired by the life of Dr. Albert Schweitzer, noble prize of peace and missionary in Africa. Whose philosophy inspired me to be better and I quote:
The true philosophy must begin with the most immediate and most comprehensive fact of meaning: 'I am a living being and I want to live, in the midst of living beings who wish to live'. Life and love in their opinion are based and follow the same principle: respect for each manifestation of life and a personal and spiritual relationship to the universe.
  I am a mother of two daughters, I love traveling and meeting new people. And keep learning, I am also an Ecologist and I try to change habits that affect our planet. In essence I believe in tolerance and respect life in all its forms.
