8) What you love about Greece: What I liked most about Athens was its sea, the clear freshwater, calm waves, and soft sand. When I dipped my head in the water I felt life running through my veins, vibrating at the frequency of water. In Athens, I also liked meeting the locals who seamed very politically active, and I loved that. They took me to Exarchia where we celebrated life with drums, guitars and electronic music. I loved the view from the Parthenon, simply walking down the streets, the street art, the food, and coffee, I loved how easy it is to navigate the city, the museums and so much more. I loved Athens!

13) Anything else you’d like us to know? I’m running a crowdfunding campaign to finance “Circo nu3”, a social circus program in Barranquilla Colombia South America. Through circus techniques, nu3 seeks to make a social transformation, stimulate the creativity of young people at risk, and promote the development of a life project. The program is free for the community, directly for 50 young people between 13 and 18 years of age. By offering this program, we hope to empower leaders and train circus trainers, giving them an alternative to dangerous behaviors such as unsafe sex, violence or drugs.
