Asthma is the most common chronic disease among children. This respiratory disease now aects 1 in 10 children around the world! This illness is accountable for 250,000 annual deaths worldwide and is the third leading cause of hospitalization among children in the US.
Asthma treatment is characterized by a daily controller medication and an emergency treatment (quick relief medicine like Ventolin). Long-term controller treatments help stabilize the disease and are the basis for an improved daily health condition for asthmatic children!
However, 50% of this controller medication is not properly followed, leading to discomfort, attacks and other health complications.

I started my music studies since I was a little kid. When I started college I decided to focus on musical composition, looking for cinematographic and theatrical composition. This link between sound and image took me to think about design as an option to add value to my career. Starting from understanding the dialogue between image and sound, I realized I wanted to take this further. Also, I have done the art direction for theatre plays. I helped organizing The First Democratic Culture Seminar in Bogotá. I am a feminist woman, trying to change my mind-sets at a time, so I can recognize it easily and make a chance at a time.
