About Me

Born in Quito, Ecuador and grew up in New York City. Graduated high school at the age of 16 and moved to the United Kingdom. Did my undergraduate in inInternational Studies at Goldsmiths University of London and my LLM in International Human Rights Law from City University London. 


Founded my own non-profit called FGM News, where we aim to promote FGM awareness.


Currently, doing my LLB at University College Cork in Cork, Ireland.

Passion for Law

My passion for law stemmed during a summer school program at the London School of Economics where I took a course on International Human Rights Law. This experience showed me how politics and law go hand in hand and in order to comprehend the political world, I needed to learn the legislative part of it. Consequently, it led me to pursue my LLM in International Human Rights. Whilst my studying, I truly learned more about international law but also realised that I want to pursue the career of being an international solicitor.
