Who I am?...
My name is Mari Cruz Garcia (aka Aaricia Thorgalson). I can be defined as a fine blend of learning technologist, new-born Buddhist and social activist. I am using Mahara as my own eportfolio as I contribute to the Mahara project and believe in the potential of this software.
I have a strong technological background and seven years of academic studies, including a degree, master and a PhD research project (without thesis).
I speak English,español und ein bisschen Deutsch. I also like to use French expressions to look more glamorous and sophisticated than I really am.
WANTS AND OFFERS
I want to live in a society ruled by justice, trust and compassion, rather than fear and punishment.
I want to work where I am considered a human being, and not a "human resource".
I want to believe that an organisation/company is a group of people who share a vision and work together to achieve that vision.
I want to work in projects where people can still think "out of the box", and self-awareness and personal growth are still permitted.
I want to be "into people", not "into business".
I offer honesty, integrity, passion, energy and I believe that hard word too (or so say my previous employers).
I can be moody and challenging sometimes, when I am confined to bleak crowded offices.
