Maria Teresa is pursuing a degree in International Relations at the University of Panama. Maria Teresa’s work is wide reaching for example she has worked on projects centered on human rights, led workshops whose target audience was underage girls deprived of liberty, cared for homeless people, led workshops for women in vulnerable conditions, and led talks concerning animal protection. 

Maria Teresa is currently the coordinator of the Nan Gana Project. The Nan Gana Project works to educate mothers or caregivers in vulnerable conditions in study methodologies, soft skills and technology, so that they can be mentors in their children’s learning and at the same time acquire knowledge and skills that serve them in their own lives. Additionally, Maria Teresa is the founder of Sentir Panama, a project that works to provide children and adolescents in shelters in Panama essential soft and educational skills for their development.
