" I feel very excited to be part of this program because the environment for LGBT people in my country is really hard. I am absolutely sure that all the tools and knowledge will bring a very beautiful light of hope to my community.
Being part of the LGBT Community and be proud of that in a country like Mexico is a statement of life, that will change everything, living with the discrimination in a constantly fight for your rights. I believe in humanity and I am sure that we are creating a different culture with love and respect for all. "
