Hi everybody. My name is Ana Rico. I’m venezuelan, I’m 30 years old, I came here because my friend Antonieta Garcia @lunaticanto told me about Hive, she said that I could write and post about the topics I like on this platform.
I have a slogan that has been with me for some years: "the only constant in life is change", proof of this is my own destiny, the course towards different places, people and situations that have made me what I am today.
I love reading other's opinions and generating an exchange that can feed my mind. I’m not here to be the owner of any truth, so I would like you to comment, criticize, rectify, suggest, that is the best way to understand anything. I like to write, poetry, philosophy, literature and history. I am fascinated with travels, but above all I enjoy growing up.
Durante dos años fui bombero voluntario de mí misma Universidad, gracias a esto ahora estoy capacitada para reaccionar con calma ante situaciones de emergencia, Atención Pre-Hospitalaria, Rescate, Incendios, incluso aprendí a nadar. Durante mi servicio aprendí que el que no vive para servir, no sirve para vivir. Dedicaré un poco de tiempo a escribirles sobre el voluntariado en una Institución bomberil en Venezuela, y también de lo que me dejó esta experiencia para la vida.
Describing myself is so difficult, I prefer to tell you what I do.
I am finishing my career as an Economist at the Central University of Venezuela. My skills were mathematics (1, 2, 3, 4 and financial), statistics (1 and 2), econometrics (1 and 2). My work experience represents occupations in important Financial Institutions of the Country: Banco de Venezuela, Banco Exterior, BancoEx (Banco del Comercio Exterior).
For two years I was a volunteer firefighter at UCV, thanks to this I am now able to react calmly to emergency situations, Pre-Hospital Care, Rescue, Fires, I even learned to swim. During my service I learned that he who does not live to serve, does not serve to live. I will spend a little time writing to you about volunteering in a firefighting institution in Venezuela, and also about what this experience left me for life.
I love sports, I am a fan and also practice some disciplines. I am currently hooked with the Ultimate Frisbee, athlete for 10 years. I’ve approximately 6 years involved in organizational aspects in the Country. I’ve founded clubs, organized teams, created leagues in the best fields of Venezuela, I’ve taught many adults and kids to throw, run and catch. I have been working for two years as a teacher of this discipline in schools in Caracas, I have training with the National Institute of Sport and Coca-Cola Femsa as a coach.

Before Ultimate, I was veryyyy involved with football, specifically in children's categories, I have infinite patience to work with kids.
I love physical activity, running, biking, gym, mountaineering, swimming, playing tennis, basketball, yoga, stretching, calisthenics, and others.
I am committed to improving recycling habits in my country, I am working on the most difficult part of this transition: education. I offer formations about circular economy, waste classification and make the necessary links between companies and communities so that the latter can obtain benefits by improving their life habits. I have an Instagram page where I publish educational information and also about some activities I organize: recycling days, beach cleanings, trainings, among others.
One of my passions is planting. I have worked on some projects that make me feel very proud. I have built some gardens, on land, in pots, on balconies, always helping to optimize spaces, I love productive plants, my choice is usually this type of plants. I consider myself a specialist in tomatoes and strawberries, and I have had to learn a lot about these two to deal with pests and be able to have quality fruits.
Last year I set myself unrealistic goals of learning English in 6 months, I downloaded a lot of apps for the cell phone, and I will tell you that this goal obviously failed because I did not learn English, but from all this was the experience of meeting a wonderful man, a Norwegian, his name is Jan who brought me to his house to spend some incredibles moments. In another post I will throw out the whole story because it is a love story, at least for me, and I would love to write about it.
Gracias por leerme hasta el final, un gran abrazo
The goal of improving my English is still valid, I have a 3/10 understanding and a 1/10 conversation.
Thanks for reading me to the end, a big hug
