"My dream is to see people my age well trained and therefore to teach, where young people reach high positions of leadership, where before almost impossible. Arriving in leadership positions earlier, having the ability to make sociocultural changes in the middle of the time, between the wisdom of the great and the strength of the young, the window of opportunity is enormous."

WHAT IS YOUR MEMORABLE MOMENT?
When my brother Noé was born at age 10 it was the most memorable moment of my life, seeing with my own eyes that the dream of having a brother came true, and I knew that from that moment, I would never be alone in life again.

ANY SPECIAL STORIES OR FACTS ABOUT YOUR FAMILY?
If a special story with my family in quarantine was, when I fell off a ladder and spilled tomato sauce all over my head, to make a joke on my family, when my mother heard the sound of the fall and saw me on the ground . She walks over and almost faints, but out of some maternal instinct, she touched the blood, smelled it, and realized it was a lie, and then I did end up really hurt because she got so mad at me for scaring her. But it really was a lot of fun.
