I am Mercedes and I was born in the South of Spain but I did my university studies in Madrid. I studied Advertisement and Public Relations and I did my last year in Italy with an Erasmus Scholarship. Later I kept living abroad and I took part in a one-year project with the European Voluntary Service program in a Greek island called Chios, after that I stayed one more year as a worker for the organization.
I came to EduCARE because I wanted to keep discovering different work environments, challenging myself and standing out of my comfort zone. Also in EduCARE I am able to merge two of my passions communications and grass-root action. I have always wanted to see and experiment the whole world since I feel it as my home and because is one of EduCARE aims it felt right to come and try. Also EduCARE’s principles like sustainable development, local action with a global perspective and social change that leads to social development feel really related to me and my vision of how humanity should think and act.
I will be the Communications Coordinator the following months and I will try to improve and develop the internal communication since is essential for the well function and wellbeing of the organization. Also making EduCARE more visible and improving its external communication will help the organization to move forward. So far my experience with EduCARE has been really rewarding and it keeps challenging and question myself every single day.
