It has been 5 days since I arrived in Peru and I can only state that every single yard of racing at the Winter Olympics in massive pain was a 1000% worth it.
The welcoming to Peru has been overwhelming and life changing.
The feedback I received after the Olympics was just breathtaking. Messages from people in tears telling me that my story gave them a reason to live, sets me up for a long time commitment to keep inspiring the one in need of hope.
My goal is to get the message out to every single corner in Peru on how achieving your dreams against adversity elements such as poverty, discrimination, gender, etc.
Media has been playing a key role to spread the word. I have been giving at least twelve interviews daily to all main media channels here in Peru.
All these media coverage helps, but the bottom line here must be achieved through field work and by personally delivering the message to the ones in need. So, I have been visiting communities located in the periphery of Lima. These are very poor sections is desperate need for hope and guidance.
Robertocarcelen.org new website will be launching on March 7th here in Lima in a public event to be held in local hotel. The new face will provide besides an informational blog, shortcuts to the latest ongoing projects and finally a link to support this program through your donations. Yes, all this current work has been financially supported out of my own pocket, an incredible team of volunteers and by donations coming from motivational presentations that I have been giving to some corporations.
