Hi! My name is Alonso Gamboa, from Costa Rica, I'm student of Sociology at Universidad de Costa Rica, and Political Economy at UNED. I'm member of Humanist Movement, I collaborate for two Non-Government Organizations whose working for peace, the first one is Centro de Amigos para la Paz, and secod one is Servicio de Paz y Justicia, the latter has a Nobel Peace Prize.
As the official video this is a great opportunity to share with thousand students, learning from their experiences, culture, education system, environmental care, politics for youths, and all about of their dreams.
I really want to replicate all kind of things that can work in Costa Rica. Currently I'm living at a poor township (Alajuelita) and I want to make a change, first of all, to the children and youths, actually, I am certified by the municipality to give workshops to families, but I feel I need to know even more.
Besides this experience is essential for increase my career and for developing my leadership. I want to learn more about World War II, how is the development of society in their daily actions, analyze architecture, feel their society, ask about everything.
I am already appointed as delegate for Costa Rica, I need buy the ticket to travel to Russia. I have the support of my professor of Political Economy, Marino Marozzi, who is one of the best economists in the country; and also I have the support of Ana Cecilia Jiménez, President of ACODEHU (Asociación Costarricense de Derechos Humanos).
As addicional information, this will be my first time out of my continent (America), so I really appreciate each dollar that you donate for this, my project of life.
