Hi. I live in Cuzco and I am very proud of having been born in this ancient land. I feel part of all the culture of Cuzco and it makes me feel alive amongst our mountains. Above all, I love to immerse myself in our history and be able to write about our ways of life, as well as document them through photography.
I am completely Cusqueño and am 20 years old. By profession, I am a systems analyst. I like to listen to and play Andean music as well as do break dancing. I also love to share my experiences as someone from Cuzco with other people. One of my great goals is to get to know my culture more deeply and share it with others, both people of other generations and brothers and sisters from other parts of the world.
I am from Cuzco, Peru and live in the Urb. Ayuda Mútua. I am 19 years old. I love to play football (soccer) where I play forward, listen to music, and write articles.

Something about me. I was born in Cusco, this land filled with history. It is where my personal history also begins. It has always filled me with wonder, both because of the magical mystery of its streets and their stories as well as the energy that the city its monuments, mountains, and diverse culture irradiate. I believe it a catalyst to unite people from different nations in one single place. While growing up here I fell in love even more with the culture around me. I wanted to be a sharp observer of its change and its mysteries. I look for them in its streets, while I live within this city. It will never quit enchanting and surprising me.
