2022 Fellow

Voices That Inspire


Katherine has a degree in International Relations with a specialty in International Security from the University of San Carlos in Guatemala. From an early age, Katherine has been passionate about helping her community. She has served as a volunteer and mentor in various non-profit organizations in Guatemala. These experiences motivated and inspired her to start the Brave Guatemala (Voces que Florecen) project in 2022. The project aims to provide comprehensive and sustainable support to girls and adolescents between the ages of 14 and 18 who are in public and private orphanages in Guatemala. The goal of the project is to provide specialized mental and emotional health programs to increase program participants’ hope and abilities. There is also a technical component to the project. Through technological education, based on functional tools for the technical needs of the labor market and professional development, participants are able to fully integrate into society.
