I was born in the trade,
fell in love with the world,
and this is my story

"Unos nacen con estrella y otros nacen estrellados." (Which basically translates to, 'Some are born with a star and others shattered by it.')

This popular and liberating phrase, that I heard from my ‘Abuelita’ so many times, stuck with me while growing up. 
 
I began to understand what she meant as I made friends from many cultures, in several countries, shared experiences with multiple societies, and started doing business with people of all origins, social classes, and ways of life.

At birth I was given a star. Now, I share it with you; this is how it glows:

An inherited trait

I come from a family of entrepreneurs, who dared to defy fate and ventured out of their expected way of life to achieve wonderful things (one day if you want I'll tell you the story). My maternal grandparents, poor by birth, exceeded all the expectations of people in their time and, as a life-long team, ended up building Benquil, a now more than 40-year-old family business. My mom, a pharmacist by profession, inherited the entrepreneurial streak and used her expertise to start multiple businesses in the healthcare sector that have benefited numerous communities; even becoming one of the founding partners of a regionally exemplary commercial cooperative of pharmacies. My dad, who followed a similar path, grew up in a marginalized neighborhood, climbed the social ladder, and passed away being a lawyer admitted to The Bar Association of Puerto Rico - advocating for fairness, equity, equality, and a just rule of law. 

I owe my professional career to them.

As a result of their example, I have developed a strong taste for education (as the foundation), social business (as a fair method of wealth creation and dissemination), and technology (as the enabler). So, after earning my Dual Master of International Business - from Universidad del Sagrado Corazón, Puerto Rico, USA and Foro Europeo de la Escuela de Negocios de la Universidad de Navarra, Pamplona, Spain I entered the exponential technologies world to explore my passion for Edtech, Artificial Intelligence, and self-sustainable businesses - inclined to address social problems and impact the status quo. This has developed in me a commitment to technological innovation, and led me to be recognized as a Silicon Valley Innovation and Entrepreneurship Forum (SVIEF) Top 30. I plan to continue creating systems and models that improve humanity; in order to do this (for now ) these are my qualifications:
