|Cohort Assignment||Cohort B (Americas)|
|1. What do you see as your primary work at this stage of your life?|
I just reached a turning point in my life, I am going through a process of decision making to figure it out. I have been -since childhood- a key person to transform people´s thinking and doing, both individually as well as collectively. I write, broadcast, meditate and teach, mostly informally, so far. I would love to have the network and resources to do so in a more stable basis. My primary work would be both artistic and social. I work mainly with women in a rural community in Tapalpa, Mexico.
|2. What role do you see as yours to play?|
I see myself as a link between the rural scene and the academic projects. I am an easy going link as well between rural and city characters. I engage people with nature. I bring people to deepen their awareness and minds. I practice disruption as a hobby everyday. I usually bring hope to the scene, although I am realistic and sensitive, I look for a critical perspective. I might have a part both in rural Tapalpa, as well as in the capital state city, Guadalajara, where budgets, polices and main decision making takes place.
|3. What goals or aims do you have in regard to the above?|
Find out how my life and my soul work and evolve to set a path for next stage in my life. Put myself to the service of my environment and community, to Mother Earth. Figure out a way to knit a network among stakeholders and the community, specially to bring women to the scene and make visible their essence and importance.

Networking, team making, liability in the face of stakeholders and the community. I have much to learn about setting healthy boundaries and restate my expectations. To hold on to my spiritual practice and make room for a healthier way to take care of my body in the next stage. Balance.
|5. And for professional growth?|
I would love to set the ground for a healthy way of living for myself, generate a stable income, and share my findings with other women in my personal circle. I would love to establish my complex profile and professional route into a simple platform to work from.
