Son las 9:00 AM, recibo una llamada de la escuela y me dicen: “Por favor, venga a buscar a su hija quien no se siente bien y está vomitando.”  Mi trabajo está a 45 minutos de la escuela, llamo a mi esposa. “¿Puedes buscar a Sofía? Ella no se siente bien” yo digo. Mi esposa está en medio de presentaciones con sus estudiantes.

It is 9:00 AM, I get a call from the school saying: “Please come to pick up your child who is not feeling well and is throwing up”. My place of work is 45 minutes away, I call my spouse. “Can you pick up Sofia? She is not feeling well” I say. My spouse is in the middle of presentations with her students. We calculate together what is less damaging: to cancel my day meetings which can be postponed or to cancel the student presentations with more complicated logistics. We decide is better to postpone my meetings, I move all the meetings and jump on the road. I call the doctor for an appointment and we go from school, to home, to the doctor in less than 30 minutes.

Thanks to her research, the student Ivia Moreno Rosado had the opportunity to travel to China. Once there, a new opportunity arose, when she was asked to establish a Saturday science academy at a high school in China. Staying open to opportunities, flexible to new challenges, and confident in herself helped Ivia gather a number of personal, academic and professional achievements.

From an early age I have been interested in understanding the interactions between the fauna, the ecosystem and humans. These interests played a key role in my decision of pursuing my undergraduate studies in biology at the Metropolitan University (UMET) of the Ana G. Méndez System. During my sophomore year I took a botany course with Professor Eva Dávila. That experience helped define my next steps. Professor Dávila became a mentor and I worked in her laboratory in several projects related to zoology and botany.
