Global Venezuelan. Latinopolitan. Doctor in Education Sciences – Researcher in informal learning, intercultural exchanges and online media.
I'm in love with many areas and I can't choose, so I cross and intercept them. I've researched on new technologies and their role in intercultural sensitivity and gender. I've also written about cultural encounters and explored the world of web literacy and online censorship. I'm also passionately interested in ‘global’ literature and hybrid identities.
My writing work has been published and shared on Global Voices, Public Radio International, IFEX, NACLA and Freemuse, among others.
