Perceptions « Are you a model? » said the investment banker
This question was asked to me last night, at an elegant Manhattan rooftop in the company of my former UN colleague. From a superficial perspective, as the approach per se is superficial, one could be flattered. I dress up sharp as much as my male counterparts wear three piece suits.
So to this gentleman’s question I answered the usual: « No, I am a lawyer, a PhD Researcher in international investment law, and a World Bank Young ICSID Delegate »
He answered « Well, can you prove you are a lawyer » to which I answered « Well, can you prove you are a banker »

Palabras de Jim Yong Kim ex- presidente del Banco Mundial:
Con demasiada frecuencia seguimos oyendo a los líderes decir: “Primero promoveremos el crecimiento de nuestras economías y después invertiremos en nuestra gente”. Pero invertir en las personas es invertir en el crecimiento económico. *
Es urgente porque estamos encarando varias crisis de capital humano: en todo el mundo, 155 millones de niños sufren retraso del crecimiento, lo que significa que no se desarrollan de manera apropiada; 250 millones de niños no saben leer ni escribir, pese a tener un cierto grado de escolarización; 400 millones de personas carecen de acceso a servicios de salud esenciales, y solo un tercio de los pobres del mundo cuenta con cobertura de redes de protección social.
Datos de 2017, lo que estoy segura que esto no mejoró. Lamento pensar que hasta que no vean el negocio en el bienestar de las personas, no lo van a promover. *

One of my favourites from the work I did at the exquisite hotel in Ubud, Jungle fish. Their tranquil infinity pool surrounded with tropical luscious green, let’s you lounge around and keep cool under the scorching Indonesian sun.
I spent 6 weeks exploring Indonesia and couldn’t believe the idyllic and stunning places with friendly locals constantly wanting to welcome me. ...
This image takes me back to one of the most ridiculous nights sleeps I’ve ever had, one of those travel moments that makes me you smile just thinking about. Those experiences you know are totally mad but the excitement and craziness compensate the, ‘what an earth am I doing’ feeling.
Sharing this space, on a large, overloaded boat down the Amazon for 14 hours, taking me from the small rural jungle village I was staying in, back to Iquitos. Everyone brings their own hammocks and as many people squeeze onto the boat, it was a chaotic, humid and loud atmosphere, hundreds of locals and only myself and my friend Paul as tourists. We set up our space and spent that night with a few beers and joints, floating down the Amazon back to some level of normality. Sleeping above 5 cockerels wasn’t what I had in mind but another unforgettable night and epic adventure. ...
