“I want to be able to capture the very essence of what it means to be human. Learn how the lens reacts to the beauty of our world and share the digital imprint of souls that are left behind after every click” - Yuri

I am an international children's rights lawyer. My strong and long-lasting commitment to CHILDREN'S RIGHTS issues started when I was 12 years old and got selected by my peers to serve as a national spokesperson for the Peruvian youth in national and international projects. 
I also lived and worked as a volunteer in local NGOs in Peru, Spain, India and Thailand. 

Official Studies: 
Advanced Master of Laws (LLM) in International Children's Rights | Leiden University (Leiden Excellence Scholarship awardee).

Bachelor of Laws (LLB) | University of Barcelona.

I love to TRAVEL- My mission has been to grow a better understanding of the variety of our world, admire the richness and beauty of it through yoga and photography. 

YOGA. I'm a certified yoga instructor RYS 200hrs. I did my training in Rishikesh, India - 2015. I'm Amazed with the personal journey that yoga has made me discover. Acceptance, patience, respect, self awareness and courage to keep pushing forward while enjoying the transformation within and out.
