His main motivation has been love
From a very young age, Jorge has identified himself with his professional vocation whose main motivation and inspiration was his mother:
“Every day I used to wake up very early to watch my mother do her makeup before she went to work”.
This led him to believe that we can all do wonderful things and improve the world if we offer our best side.
He enjoys helping women through Calicanto Foundation, besides being a professional makeup artist, Jorge is photographer and journalism student at the University of Panama.
His skill led him to work with different cosmetics companies recognised worldwide by countries such as Guatemala, Peru, Costa Rica, Brazil, Uruguay, among others.
For seven years, Jorge has provided lessons of Image and Personal Appearance to women living in at-risk areas like San Felipe, Santa Ana, Calidonia, El Chorrillo, Curundú among other communities.
He led tutorials that provides adequate guidance on the use of colors, styling and good maintenance of the image for the particular benefit of each student.
“A well-made-up woman is a confident woman, with a better self esteem and with a different way of looking into life.”
By donating his talent, Jorge teaches us that we can change a life by educating with love and working together for the empowerment of CAPTA beneficiaries.
Jorge has a rule of thumb for his students “climbing the first step, is wanting to change”, that is why he always tells his students “beauty is a feeling”.
He told us that growth is reciprocal because his contribution not only has changed his life, but has also has helped him to become “more human and sensitive”.
In his spare time he enjoys photography, spending time his family and friends, staying proactive and tenacious.
We appreciate his contribution to Calicanto Foundation and the community of San Felipe.
