What I Do

I recently graduated from a Masters in Public Administration program and have previous administrative experience both in person and online.
I have worked in the nonprofit world as an administrative assistant and as grant writing and social media intern. As a virtual assistant I created and strengthened partnerships, updated websites and was on charge of link building.
I fluently speak English, Spanish, and French. Not only I can translate and interpret from any of those languages, I am able to perform administrative work in any of them.
Experienced with Google, Office, Canva, Zoom, Skype, and InDesign. I am a self-starter, a fast learner, and a problem solver. My skills, combined with my education and my professional background make me a perfect fit for any nonprofit, as I am versed in public policy and in international politics as well.

What I Am Looking For

As someone passionate about human rights, I would love to serve a nonprofit that works in advocacy for a better world.
I am open to support the administrative endeavors, advocacy campaigns, grant writing or translation efforts that would help to advance a fair cause. I feel comfortable in any of these roles because I have previous experience in all of them.
Currently, I am following news about environmental issues, the immigration crisis in the Northern countries, gender inequality cases and the alarming trends of femicide in the world. These are the types of causes that touch my heart and I would love to contribute for.
I am a multipotentiate interested in solving issues at a nonprofit. I am passionate about human rights, translation, and marketing. I aspire to join a team with an open and balanced company culture that values top talent. To me, the ideal organization is where team members are valued, can grow professionally, and feel free to pitch ideas.
