Juan is originally from Colombia and has been in New Zealand for nine years now. He is studying a Bachelor of Arts in Film and Theater. On first arrival with his family, the first thing he noticed about this country was its beauty. The main challenges he faced entering a new place was the language barrier. He has fortunately been able to master that and is now comfortable communicating and doing what he enjoys the most which is working amongst passionate people to create something new and meaningful that he hopes can also support other youth out there who want their voices heard.
Juan finds film and theatre as an outlet for individuals to express their views and different cultural upbringing. From this, people in society can change and learn from each other through art. Juan is a very valuable member of our team.
