Mentoring Experience

  • As Tourist Guide, I am used to deal with different kinds of people,
  • As Language Teacher for adults for 20 years, it has shaped my ability to deal with different personalities and backgrounds.
  • As LACRALO Secretary, when I started my secretary tenure I made contact with all organizations of LACRALO, because I realized that only a few ALSs had been active. As a result of my contact many organizations began to participate and others increased their participation. In this process I also discovered that some ALSs didn´t participate because they didn´t know how to do it; they didn´t know what were the participation and policy processes within ICANN. It was, overall, such a big mentoring work, but very rewarding nevertheless. Mr. Humberto Carrasco´s, our current Alac Member, organization can serve as a great example: the organization is regarded as a founding member of LACRALO and, before my contact, was not very active in the region. Mr. Carrasco can confirm this success story.
  • The LACRALO showcase under the supervision of Mr. José Arce and me, at ICANN 48, had superb attendance numbers and was one the most successful events of its kind.
  • 2 years as a NOMCOM member, gave me a “big picture” view of how ICANN works, and what are the needs of each one its constituencies.    
  • As a Foreign Affairs Analyst, I´ve complemented beautifully my 12 years of experience at ICANN.
  • Participating in the LACRALO Mediation processes I´ve learned to deal with all kinds of situations and delved deep in current LACRALO culture.  
  • As 12 years ICANN ecosystem member I have developed a great network of contacts and know almost all of the ALSs of LACRALO and many from the other RALOs and I think that can greatly serve my mentees.
  • I am confident that I will be able to guide the mentees throughout all constituencies.
