Even in my wildest assumptions I never expected to happen something like last year. For me, it was hard, stressful, scary but also cheerful, hopeful, and eye-opening. I did not plan to get caught in the United States by a worldwide pandemic but I’m glad I had. I not only didn’t get sick but managed to learn a lot and have a nice experience that even led to a full-time job.
Due to my visa expiration, I am back in Peru once again. I’m happy to see my family and have some typical food from here. Nonetheless, now I miss Michael, Tacoma, some roommates, and life there in general. Some people told me that I should’ve stayed there, but I’m not only respectful of the laws; I have some important projects here. They may not understand that my journey with LiftPort has not come to an end yet. We are trying to establish some sort of subsidiary that works on some of the technical projects we may have. I’ve always liked the idea of entrepreneurship, and now I have a chance to work on it. Some friends and I are hoping to get some contracts to develop technology and hopefully, I can start managing that. One of my life’s goals has been to create a successful technology company that improves the lives of people, and now I see an opportunity in space technology. This is very exciting!
Just like in the U.S.A., pandemic handling has not been good here. While I’m still safe, I cannot say the same for some of my extended family. But harder times also create opportunities, so I’m hoping for the best. I really hope vaccination helps.
We at LiftPort got more confident running online events. I am personally confident running the technical side of the events, all the way from Peru! Even after some Brazilian trolls stormed our Gmeet room, I can say we have had successful events that I’m sure are helping the Foundation for the Future.
I know these events will come to an end someday, so while we are covered for some months, we should definitely plan long term, in order to keep the winning streak at LiftPort.
