Historias privadas de la libertad

PERSONAL STORIES
OF FREEDOM

In a world that is moving at full speed and whose relationships are increasingly ephemeral, second chances are underrated. We easily recognize when we should give someone a chance, but are we aware of the moments when we believe to deserve them as well? This is a question that invites us to reflection, to look inwards and identify what we do for others, to improve the life of our community, and which may result in a drastic change of life, as happened to Johana Bahamón.
