Reason why I joined JICA:

When I was a little girl, I saw a bridge donated by the Government of Japan. The bridge was built due to a hurricane in 1998 (Hurricane Mitch) in a place prone to floods. So, I joined JICA because I felt I could help Nicaraguan people while working for this agency. At the same time, I was curious about the Japanese culture.
Hobbies: I like to hike volcanoes, watch sunrise and sunsets, listen to rock music, watch action movies, and travel to other cities.
