I am a Social Educator and Project Specialist at the NGDO Galician International Solidarity. I work in the organization’s Education Department, and am responsible for the research area. 

My work focuses mainly on promoting Global Citizenship Education, both in regulated (at all stages) and non-regulated education, as well as generating collaborations and synergies with different institutions and organizations that aim for social and political transformation towards a critical, empowered and emancipated global citizenry.  


At my NGDO we are aware that it is essential to move towards practices of inter-institutional collaborative work, in which each entity assumes a differentiated role, according to its potential, while still allowing us to provide common and comprehensive responses to the complexities of today's society. For this reason, I believe that including profiles like mine, outside the academy, closer to the action, adds value to the ECIGAL research group. 

About me

I graduated in Social Education (2014) from the University of A Coruña and am Education Project Specialist in Galician International Solidarity (2013 - present).  

Throughout these years of professional experience, my work within the organization has focused mainly on the management and coordination of all types of education initiatives for global citizenship (design, formulation, implementation, evaluation and justification of activities and projects from different funding bodies).  ​

I have experience as a lecturer, trainer and organizer of conferences and seminars on Global Citizenship Education. In addition to my professional practice in the area of Education, I also actively participate in other areas promoted by the NGDO, such as Fair Trade, Social Participation and Development Cooperation.  In this last area I have experience with international volunteering, in the form of a 3-month residency in the neighborhood of Acahualinca (Managua-Nicaragua) in the context of a comprehensive development project for the improvement of environmental, social, economic and living conditions in the área surrounding the A Chureca Landfill.  

My research experience began in the last year of my undergraduate studies, as I conducted  the Final Degree Project "A study of training and awareness projects in development education at the NGDO Galician International Solidarity." Since then my participation in projects and research has increased, with the help of the University of A Coruña and the University of Santiago de Compostela, always linked to Global Citizenship and transformative pedagogies. In addition to education and social pedagogy, I am also interested in related topics such as feminism and gender equality, sustainability and environmental education, and human rights.  

As a social educator, I focus on cooperating in the generation of social alternatives and projects that contribute to the development and implementation of strategies aimed at global justice. For all of these reasons, I am guided by two maxims that I always try to apply, both professionally and personally: "Co-responsibility," in other words, to think globally and to act locally; and "Consistency between thinking, feeling and doing." I believe that both of these help me to avoid losing sight of what is important.
