After 7 and 1/2 years, I am back in my home Ecuador and I am already working
hard to change my country for good. I currently lead Hult Prize Ecuador, work
incubating social enterprises and consult on topics like monitoring and
evaluation, project design, project evaluation, and business model
innovation. After so long, I am able to be back in my region working for my
people with a purpose of helping those who can't help themselves with
opportunities, access and education.
When I did my first community project, I was able to see the poverty many
people in my country face and that even though I was poor for the capital's
standard, what I went through was nothing in comparison to what people in
various provinces face. Ecuador has now changed, but we still have a lot of
work to do!
ActionsThrough my work as incubation facilitator, I work with 9 social enterprises
helping them settle, grow and increase their impact! As Hult Prize Ecuador
Director, I empower university students to create the social enterprises of
the future. Finally, as a social entrepreneur, I'm working to educate
unprivileged youth in tech and give them personal development and family
Before coming back to Ecuador, in London, apart from founding and leading the
LSE SU Social Innovation Society and working as a social business consultant
with Nairobits Trust in Kenya to help them developing a sustainable business
model, I was part of the organizing team of SOS Ecuador, a fund raising
campaign for the victims of the earthquake in Ecuador that has left more than
650 deaths and thousands injured.
In April 2016, a 7.8 Richter scale earthquake stroke my beautiful home
country, Ecuador! I felt like I wanted to buy the next plane ticket to
Ecuador and go help on the ground!
However, with our student network in the UK, we were able to organize
ourselves and create a massive decentralized campaign to collect funds to
help the emergency disaster relief fund. We got full support and endorsement
from our Embassy in the UK and got to work. Our initial goal was £8,000, but
we reached £10,000 in less than 12 hours! We stretched our goal to £50,000
and in less than 6 days, we had collected more than £25,000 (half way
through our goal)!
