I'm part of Hogaru.com which is an start-up that already hires 100 people for cleaning services on a latin-american context. My role is to increase the use of digital channels for recruitment and purchasing. Standardize the service of cleaning on three capital cities and guarantee a good communication between the managing department, cleaners and clients.
@ University of the Andes I was vicepresident of the LGBT society (2010-2011), received a "bankrupted" organization and raised its budget from 150.000 COP to 12.000.000 COP in one year of hard work. Created digital channels for it, supported to strengthen the activism, welfare and academic branches with funds and media requested. The society opened a support group, a hotline in association with the psychology department for LGBT students, and hosted more than 10 speeches by gender experts, activists, entrepreneurs among others. Opened its' gates to other universities in mentoring their societies. the "circulo lgbt uniandino" became a reference for student organisations nationwide during these years.
