Director, O.L.I.

2022 Goldin Global Fellow (Spanish)

Desiree is the Director of O.L.I. and a Venezuelan Lawyer who has worked with vulnerable populations on the Venezuelan – Colombian border where she has worked for more than eight years. Recently, her work has expanded to provide support to immigrants and victims of the armed conflict. She strongly believes in a better world and is eager to show empathy to what has happened in Colombia throughout the decades of conflict in addition to the current Venezuelan humanitarian crisis understanding that our borders are territories that do not respect our nationalities, so they can become bridges of hope and chances for new beginnings rather than barriers.
