Julieth Alejandra Fuquene Alarcón, peace animator of the Peacemakers Project alongside Cop Colombia International, shared with us her passion for sports and how she wants to support children in her community. She practices taekwondo since the age of 10 and she started to practice football at 16 years old. In her free time, she likes to practice other sports such as tennis, volleyball, basketball, and sometimes archery. In the future, she would like to keep teaching football to kids. Working with children inspires her. With them, she feels that she is growing and learning new things every day.
