Who am I?
I'm a curious of life with idealistic tendencies and a fighter.
One who believes that shadows are the necessary contrast to enhance the light
One who always tries to keep aligned what he lives with what he feels
One who cultivates fragility as a tool to go beyond
One who thinks that any image has value only if it sees the light
