I am a Venezuelan trying to become a researcher in Education Sciences in France. I'm interested in cultural expressions through the 2.0 and how we can discover new horizons with people's stories. I deeply believe in the uniqueness and importance of every culture and in the study of them as a mirror to our own. I blog about about languages, literature, cultures, education and more at Crónicas lenguaraces, a blog with an evil twin hosted by Hypotheses.org in which I share fun stuff I find through my research.
