Mission

I AM YOU #PEACE GLOBAL is a multidimensional NGO whose principal motive is to create a sustainable world with love and respect. One where these two variables are not only linked to human beings, but to one’s environment, animals and everything that constitutes nature. We believe in the inter-connectedness of nature and if a part of it is affected negatively, all the other ones suffer as well. Basically, our operations are geared towards the ideas in the quote “If you see me like yourself, you will say NO to war, terrorism, human trafficking, xenophobia, environmental degradation, violence and YES to love and respect, and will think humanity first because I AM YOU”. It is to this effect that we set out to take a stand against hate by preaching, practicing and advocating for love and respect because we believe the availability of these values will create a peaceful and sustainable world.

I specialize in online art and I love visualizing your ideas using the latest and most successful web design concept tools, such as Photoshop and Illustrator . I have a proven track of meeting and exceeding client requests, because I think of your objective as a personal goal of my own. While I thrive in a team working environment I am also very well organized alone and I work well within set deadlines. I believe in a collaborative approach to every task, as more heads think better than one and eventually produce higher quality results. Through the wide range of environments I've worked in and the extra software training I have participated in I have developed excellent social and technical skills that I continue to refine on a daily basis. Despite the fact that I am often stereotyped as a workaholic, I never miss a Kango class or an opportunity to go for a long hike in the mountains or skinny trails along the cliffside of the shore. For the remainder of my spare time I like to learn German, Z-Brush work on my “rockart” or follow the adventures of "Ricky and Morty".
