Victoria Proaño Carrasco
I was born the 9th of December of 2001, I am currently 17 years old. Although I was born in Florida I have lived all my life in Quito. I love my country, Ecuador and feel extremely grateful to having grown up here. Both of my parents love nature, my mother is a biologist and my father studied forest engineering; because of this I have been lucky enough to have grown up sorrounded by nature. As a little girl I grew up in my farm in Cayambe in the middle of the Andes and spent my childhood travelling to Galapagos . My mother taught me the name of the species surrounding me which lead me to become more observant and to develop my interest in biodiversity. I am very close to my family and am grateful for all the support they have given me.
