I dream of a place where women have the space they deserve. I believe in places that give women the support they need to thrive and FLP is one of those places. I worked for a feminist foundation in Bucaramanga and helped create a festival called Enmanandas that promote non-violence day against women (Nov 25th) by using art. Also. I am currently trying to build Global Shapers in Bucaramanga. This is a HUB founded the World Economic Forum that tries that promote young leadership. The focus of the HUB in Bucaramanga will be equality.

My name is Maria Lopez. I was born and raised in the country of Lakes and Volcanoes: Nicaragua. Ever since I was little I was passionate about two things: storytelling and science. This is exactly what got to the USA. I applied for a full scholarship at the University of South Carolina and got it. I majored in communications. After this, I went straight to graduate to pursue a masters in public health at the University of South Carolina. My journey has certainly not be a straight path at all. When I was in graduate school, I had so many failures and setbacks, but I did learn more from them and gained resilience. I was worked as a reseacher in communtiy based projects at UCSD, UCLA and SDSU. After almost 10 years in the USA, I decided to go back to Nicaragua and reconnect with my roots and my family. I worked as a marketing and communications consultant at a fashionable enterprise called CHURECA CHIC located in Managua. All of CHURECA CHICs sales went to the Extraordinary Women Foundation. This foundation gave jobs and training programs to undeserved women in Nicaragua. Currently, I am a communications advisor for Cuso International. Cuso International is a canadian ngo that works in social inclusion, gender equality and climate change.
