Born and raised in one of the most biodiverse places in the world, Colombia, I discovered my fascination for nature at an early age. Through my undergraduate studies in biology I experienced first-hand how wonderful and fragile our ecosystems are, which grew into a personal call to action. My passion for sustainability brought me to Germany more than four years ago to further focus my career on that area. Since November 2016, I am the lucky first – and so far the only – Functional Trainee in Sustainability at adidas. As a former Tae Kwon Do practitioner and current CrossFit amateur, I see sport as a crucial part of my life. Sport gives me balance, persistence, and courage.
