🇪🇨🇸🇪Ecuadorian-Swedish

I obtained my Bachelor's degree in International and European Law with a specialization in International Criminal and Humanitarian Law at The Hague. After receiving my Bachelor's degree, I continued to pursue my passion for Human Rights and Law; I then obtained my Masters's degree in Public International Law, focusing on International Criminal Law at Stockholm's University. I have previously worked and advocated continuously on the issue of sexual violence against the male gender, especially against refugees and asylum seekers, and in situations of armed conflict.

I wanted to continue my legal humanitarian work and advocacy efforts

I joined Fenix Aid and came to Lesvos as I wanted to continue my legal humanitarian work and advocacy efforts towards spreading awareness, training, and being part of policy change, especially change in the EU asylum policy.
