About Me

Spanish consultant with more than 5 years of professional experience in the field of human development in the MENA Region, being based in Egypt and Jordan.

I have worked with Spanish and Egyptian NGOs in the drafting and implementation of action aimed to support the socio-economic empowerment of women and youth, in addition to the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP Egypt). I helped to found the first UNDP Innovation Lab in the MENA Region which aims at fostering youth´s capabilities in order to develop their creativity and innovation skills by using human-centered approaches. The Lab activities focus on three main areas: social entrepreneurship, inclusive design and gamification.

Arabic, English and Spanish are my working languages.
