I am a volunteer.

Most often than not the response I get sounds like ‘You are just doing something for free? Girl you should get a real job’ or ‘So you hand out fliers every day?’

Mmm.. Not really.

Soy voluntaria.

Con mucha frecuencia, escucho decir: “¿Solo trabajas gratis? Necesitas conseguirte un trabajo de verdad” o “Entonces, ¿entregas volantes todo el día?”

Mmm... En realidad, no.

SDG 11: Sustainable cities and communities

Le 19 septembre 2017, le Mexique a été frappé par un séisme de magnitude 7,1 qui a renversé des bâtiments à Mexico et dans quatre États voisins. Seulement deux heures plus tôt, j'avais quitté ma réunion qui se tenait dans un immeuble très haut pour participer à l'exercice annuel commémorant le séisme de 1985 qui a frappé à la même date il y a 32 ans. Dans le cadre de l'exercice, les écoles et les immeubles de bureaux ont été évacués. Certaines personnes ont estimé que la simulation était utile quand la chose réelle frappait.

On September 19, 2017, Mexico was hit by a 7.1 magnitude earthquake that toppled buildings in Mexico City and four surrounding states.  Only two hours earlier, I had left my meeting in a high-rise building to participate in the annual drill to commemorate the 1985 earthquake which struck on the same date 32 years ago.  As part of the exercise, schools and office buildings were evacuated. Some people considered the simulation useful when the real thing hit.

El 19 de septiembre de 2017, un terremoto de magnitud 7,1 sacudió México, provocando el derrumbamiento de varios edificios en la Ciudad de México y en cuatro estados circundantes. Tan solo dos horas antes yo había abandonado una reunión celebrada en un edificio de gran altura para participar en el ejercicio que se celebra anualmente con motivo del aniversario del terremoto de 1985, que sacudió el país en la misma fecha hace 32 años. Como parte del ejercicio, se evacuaron las escuelas y los edificios de oficinas.
