Peace and Justice Teacher

Stephanie, known as Fanny, provides psychoeducational support in our classrooms. She is a graduate of the University of Costa Rica with a degree in psychology in 2016. In 2020 she began her specialization in Psychodrama, a technique that involves the body and group work as a space for transformation.
Fanny has worked in different spaces with boys and girls in different Latin American contexts, especially in peacebuilding in Colombia, where she worked not only with children but with rural communities. She has also worked on human rights in Argentina. She has different specializations in human rights, from the Grandmothers of Plaza de Mayo and the Latin American Faculty of Social Studies (FLACSO), where she has also completed her specialization in Human Rights and Democratization in Latin America.
Wherever she is working, she focuses on peace, listening and the collective.
