Being Colombian is waking up with a smile // Ser colombiano es despertar con una sonrisa

“Being Colombian has many definitions but I say it’s waking up with a smile on your face every day with the hope that my country will have a better future soon.

I am a 19-year-old with big aspirations. I believe that people can change and I constantly try not to get involved in problems, but I have a war in my mind. I’m a mix of rational and irrational.”

“Ser colombiano tiene distintos significados…pero yo diría que ser colombiano es despertar con una sonrisa en tu rostro cada día con la esperanza de en un futuro no muy lejano tener un país mucho mejor.

Soy un joven de 19 años con aspiraciones grandes, creyente de la persona en que se quiere convertir. Trato constantemente de no meterme en problemas pero tengo una guerra en mi mente. soy una mezcla entre lo racional y lo irracional.”

This is the first post in a series titled “#carasdecolombia.” I will be posting stories, pictures and interviews using this hashtag. Please feel free to add to the collection with your own pictures and stories! And yes, shout out to @humansofny for the initial inspiration for such a project.
