Individual well-being is inseparable from collective well-being. A person who is well, can live inclusion in a more organic way, because he or she knows and feels that a society that values its diversity is richer, more resilient, has more capacity to overcome obstacles and flourish. And that this is also beneficial on an individual level.

I studied psychology and there I met Maria José Cabezudo, president of Saraki and her brother Carlos Armando (with Down Syndrome) with whom I have been working since then for 26 years at the Saraki Foundation doing what I like: doing something so that we are all more inclusive and fair and so there are happy and fulfilled people in diversity.
