Who Am I?
Why am I here?
Why am I different?
Three questions that have been driving me forward, around the world, and inside-out of myself since I was a 5-year-old boy.
I’m made in Colombia, raised in Sweden, and educated worldwide.
I’m adopted and all I wanted from an early age was to be liked. But with big curly hair that kids could hide pens in and an “ugly” skin color, all I got was: “go back to where you came from”, “you don’t belong here“, “what do you think a boy with your skin color can become”.
Not even my birth mom wanted me (a belief that took me 25 years to unlearn).
So, who am I, why am I here, and why do I have to be so different?
I looked everywhere for the answers and by today, I’ve lived in 9 countries:
- From the USA to China.
- On luxurious cruise ships in the Caribbean to tents behind a railway station.
- Working in startups to leading global brands.
- Heartbroken to the point I gave up on being me.
- So broke that I almost sold myself as the boyfriend experience.
- A scout, dancer, runner, yogi, soccer player, volunteer, student, salesman, leader, coach, professional speaker…
You name it, yet, I didn’t get a step closer to the answers until the day I sat down and listened to that uncomfortable silence within, which I quickly learned was far from silent.
For this, I thank the teachers who helped me own my story, through coaching and courses by Jeffrey Allen, Tony Robbins, Deepak Chopra, Marie Forleo, and Simon Sinek.
Who I choose to be in this moment, and every moment forward.
My color, my race, my gender, my environment, and my experiences may influence who I think I am, but it’s who I choose to be in this moment and every moment forward that determines who I am.
Nobody should have to be someone they are not.
I believe we all ought to define by ourselves who we want to be and the life we want to live.
Therefore, I’m here to guide, inspire, and challenge you to stay true to your vibrant, colorful, true self so that you can feel pure joy, peace, and freedom, have healthy relationships, and contribute to making this world a blossoming place full of – LIFE!
I call this: HOME.
That’s how I carry out my mission: I’m here to help people come HOME, with the vision of a world where we all live a life, we are proud of.
Are you coming?
Or do you want to keep settling for less?
