She spent the past 7+ years in The Netherlands to pursue a Masters of Science in Sustainable Entrepreneurship at the University of Groningen / Campus Fryslân) and conducted her final research project about “Digital Storytelling to Foster Sustainable Development”.

Receiving the opportunity to work as a storytelling consultant for the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB), she travelled to Trinidad & Tobago to put her insight into practice and support a Cocoa Cluster in Trinidad & Tobago ( that aims to revive Trinitario Cocoa and provide fair livelihoods for the actors involved in the supply chain. She is also co-directing a short documentary called “Trinitario - on the edge” (IG: @trinitario_cocoa_film).
