My name is Glorymar Hernandez, but I prefer to be called “Glory”. I was born in the capital of Venezuela, Caracas, and grew up amid the crowds of the city, the tranquility of the Andean mountains and the joy of the Caribbean coast. A mixture that has taught me to enjoy wherever I am, that aroused my curiosity to know the world, and that has helped me to adapt, with relative ease, to changes. I have a degree in Philosophy, my research works are in Philosophy of Language. Since 2019 I have been working as a Spanish teacher. I decided to start teaching my mother tongue thanks to my experience learning other languages. I had the opportunity to live for a year in Ireland, where I went to learn English and, currently, I am in Italy, where I have had the opportunity to learn Italian. These experiences allowed me to realize that, although seeking perfection when trying to “speak like a native” is the ideal, what really matters is being able to communicate, make ourselves understood and be open to the experience of knowing other cultures and understand that there are many different points of view. Professionally, I have had the opportunity to work in different contexts such as banking, outsourcing consular procedures, and teaching at university level. The biggest lesson I learned from these experiences is that I am not an office person. I prefer to own my time and have the freedom to work wherever I am. For this reason, I have decided to dedicate myself to teaching Spanish online and to enter the digital world. I consider myself a very curious and versatile person, that is why in my free time I enjoy handcrafting (such as sewing or knitting), volunteering, being in contact with nature, and trying to learn new things, like playing the guitar. Regarding my geographical preferences, the beach and the mountains are my main refuges, because I can escape from the noise of the city and connect with myself. That is why I would like to be able to live with my husband on a mountain, not far from the sea.
La Ciudad de las Artes y de las Ciencias (Ciutat de les Arts i les Ciències) de Valencia es un conjunto único dedicado a la divulgación científica y cultural, que está integrado por seis grandes elementos: el Hemisfèric, cine IMAX, 3D y proyecciones digitales; el Umbracle, mirador ajardinado y aparcamiento; el Museu de les Ciències, innovador centro de ciencia interactiva; el Oceanogràfic, el mayor acuario de Europa; el Palau de les Arts Reina Sofía, dedicado la programación operística, y el Ágora, que dota al complejo de un espacio multifuncional. A lo largo de un eje de casi dos kilómetros, en el antiguo cauce del río Turia, este complejo impulsado por la Generalitat Valenciana sorprende por su arquitectura y por su inmensa capacidad para divertir y estimular las mentes de sus visitantes que, recorriendo sus edificios, conocen diferentes aspectos relacionados con la ciencia, la tecnología, la naturaleza o el arte. El papel relevante de la arquitectura en la Ciudad de las Artes y de las Ciencias de Valencia ha sido posible gracias al trabajo de dos arquitectos españoles de prestigio internacional, que han aportado aquí lo mejor de su obra: Santiago Calatrava, con el Palau de les Arts Reina Sofía, el Hemisfèric, el Museu de les Ciències, el Umbracle y el Àgora, y Félix Candela, con las singulares cubiertas de los edificios principales del Oceanogràfic. Un conjunto arquitectónico de excepcional belleza, que armoniza el continente con el contenido. Una ciudad donde conviven el mar y la luz del Mediterráneo de manera sorprendente. Se ha constituido como uno de los mayores focos de difusión cultural. En conjunto, las proyecciones digitales y las películas en gran formato en el Hemisfèric, las exposiciones interactivas en el Museu de les Ciencies Príncip Felipe y las exhibiciones bioeducativas del Oceanogràfic, conforman una gran oferta interrelacionada, que se complementa, con el único objetivo de satisfacer la curiosidad y las ganas de divertirse del visitante. La Ciudad de las Artes y de las Ciencias une además la admirada tradición mediterránea del mar y la luz, de los colores azules y blancos, con una arquitectura vanguardista diseñada por Santiago Calatrava y Félix Candela. Sus audaces líneas identifican a la capital del Turia del siglo XXI; es la estampa futurista que simboliza a la nueva Valencia: una ciudad moderna dentro de la ciudad milenaria, donde millones de visitantes acuden cada año para disfrutar con la cultura, la naturaleza, el arte y la ciencia.
The JOG Trust (Joy Of Giving Trust) is the custodian of Kidz2Kidz Projects and the Santa Shoebox Project. We are one of the leading children’s charity organisations in South Africa. The smallest gesture of kindness can have a profound effect on a child. We see this, every day, in the children we reach through our Projects. Our Cool2BeKind workshops teach children in all communities, the value of kindness and empathy as alternatives to bullying and abuse. Through a structured, term-based program Love2Learn provides support for teachers and children in under-resourced schools, while encouraging advantaged schools to become involved.
I was born in Port Elizabeth (now Gqeberha), South Africa. I’m an outgoing person who is both introverted and extroverted depending who I’m with. I enjoy meeting and interacting with new people because I believe this is how you learn and grow as a person. I’m forever looking for new adventures or challenges. I’m a go-getter, never afraid to fail because we learn more from our failures and build character from them. I believe one is never too old to learn something new things. “You can’t teach an old dog new tricks” doesn’t apply in my life. I enjoy the outdoors especially hiking, which has exposed me to some of the most beautiful hiking trails in South Africa. I also love taking game drives and explore our nature especially the animals in their natural habitats. I haven’t had the opportunity to travel beyond the borders of my country. Hopefully one day I’ll travel the world, meet different people and get to experience diverse cultures and cuisines. I had dreams of becoming a medical doctor but due to financial difficulties I settled for a National Diploma in Biomedical Technology. At least I got to work in the medical environment with doctors and other medical personnel for about 5 years. I realised that working in a laboratory was not suitable for my personality because I love people, I enjoy interacting with different people. I enrolled for a Diploma in Marketing and that led me to the pharmaceutical industry where I combined both my medical background and the marketing qualification. I worked in Sales and Marketing departments. I also had the opportunity to turn my passion for fashion into a business adventure and started my online clothing store which was a very exciting and challenging adventure. I learned a lot about importing and e-commerce. When motherhood happened and I took a break to become a stay home mom. I got involved in fitness and nutrition business. I realised that the entrepreneurship bug has got me and needed to empower myself to avoid mistakes I made in my previous business adventures, that is when I decided to register for a BCom degree in entrepreneurship via Unisa, which what I’m currently busy with. I am also teaching English as a foreign language online on freelance basis. I plan to also learn one or two foreign languages as I plan to travel the world in the not-so-distant future. I’m excited about the future and learning more in this university of life.
I grew up in a small farm community in the Eastern Cape. The world I knew then was only what was surrounding me; the farm, farm lands, livestock, bushes and forest and two or three other farm dweller families. That was my reality, no big cities or big townships. I never knew anything about big rivers, oceans, lots of animals, no idea of big mountains etc. When I grew up my parents moved to the city, things changed, it was a total new world. My world got so complex and vast. It was when I started visiting beaches, zoo, animal sanctuaries, visit nature reserves and botanical gardens and travelling by boats, ships and fly in aeroplanes. I am now an avid traveller, I also go for walks in the natural environments, listen to birds singing and so on. The world has so much to offer for those who grab these opportunities. As a family man I often visit with my family to city parks, nature reserves, and lots of community projects that take care of animals and the environment. I am both an environmental and social activist, and I have spent most of my life either being involved directly in the protection of fauna and flora or training those who are involved in the same. When I travel or visit other countries I visit mostly destinations that would offer natural and aesthetic beauty to tourists. I also have a huge interest in climate change as it is, among others, influenced by human behaviour, more especially air pollution. I am also interested in religion, more especially African Traditional religion. The reason for my interest in this branch of religion is because it is mostly nature based. In other words it is religion that does not separate between humans and nature. For the adherents of this religion life is one and God manifests himself through nature and therefore taking care of nature is a religious duty. As an environmental and social activist I am involved either through making financial contribution or contributing my time in community projects of different kinds. These projects would include contributing shoes to primary school learners who have no shoes, contributing money to soup kitchens for crèches and unemployed job seekers and many other projects. I am hoping to sustain these initiatives to a level where they can help more people.
