Hello, I'm Andrea!

Thirty years ago I went to Europe to study.  I lived in Spain, Italy, and Belgium. I worked with refugees and students from the European Council and was the protagonist of my own studies and reflections. Years later I lived in Canada & the United States. On the way, I found Intercultural Psychology, which looked at migration, people's mindset, and adaptation processes.

Then came Intercultural Education, which shows us a new perspective on the world. Thus, an exclusive methodology was born that simultaneously proposes to touch people's hearts, bring privileged knowledge, and make them rethink their way of relating to differences.


And the art of the encounter became my profession and specialty.
