Juliana Rincón Parra · October, 2009

Peruvian-Colombian with a BA in Drama and a passion for life, currently based in Colombia. I also work with the Participatory Culture Foundation on the Amara Subtitles project as the Central and South America Coordinator. I've been with Global Voices since 2006 when I started as a volunteer author for Costa Rica and it changed my life.
