Asunción, Paraguay

Bio: I was born and raised in Asuncion, Paraguay in a family deeply committed to sustainable development. My background ranges from conservation and environmental policy in Latin America, and community development in Paraguay. I am interested in deepening my knowledge on existing collaboration and success stories between Environmental Non-Profits and the private sector in Paraguay and how they could be replicated in Latin America. Furthermore I am passionate about discovering and creating frameworks that allow for the development of innovative environmental policy and public private partnerships in Latin America.

Why did you choose Evans?: I chose Evans because of the size of the student body. More than anything I was looking for a cohort that would be challenging yet collaborative, and also large enough to help me make connections across the US and the world.
