Jessica started volunteering for MSH in 2012 after meeting the founder of the organization. Little by little she became more involved in the organization and eventually took charge of MSH Peru two years later. This was a big change for Jessica both personally and professionally, but she felt called to shoulder this responsibility and dream big.
Jessica was born in Lima where people have a lot of opportunities in terms of education, resources, leisure activities, and a comfortable life. When she arrived in Ollantaytambo she was shocked by the difference in standard of living. The majority of Ollantaytambo residents are living in sub-standard conditions due to extreme poverty. Jessica felt moved to help them. Jessica’s greatest motivation is to give people, especially children, the opportunities that they do not have because of a physical disability, cultural hindrance, or other barriers that limit their access to basic rights.
