My name is Carolina Ortiz, I am 29-years old and I am originally from Colombia. At present, I am a Ph.D. student at the University of Florida. I have three things that passionate me: geology, music, and travel. Because of this, I have traveled to a lot of different countries and learned different languages. Most important of all, I enjoy every type of outdoor activity and that matches my passion for geology outreach and science communication. I want to make part of a new generation of scientists that engage actively with communicating science to diverse and multi-cultural audiences.
