Acknowledgment from a Peacemaker: Conflict Analysis and Resolution is the path to the art of peacemaking. Peacemaking is achieved in the transformation of human hearts.

My story is a simple one, as it is one of acknowledgement. It encompasses humility, compassion, love, being of service and of most importance forgiveness. With courage and boldness I acknowledge my Creator and the people who became my foundation pillars of fortitude. They became my foundation and support system, as I slowly metamorphosed into a peacemaker. As I acknowledge all those who impacted and crossed my path thus far in this journey of life, it is to my Creator and all those beautiful human beings who I dedicate the achievement and culmination of my Ph.D.

I received a Doctoral Degree in Philosophy from the Department of Conflict Analysis and Resolution at Nova Southeastern University Graduate School of Humanities and Social Sciences, Fort Lauderdale, Florida on June 21, 2014. My acknowledgement story is a journey, a gift, a miracle, a wonder and most of all the planting of a seed of HOPE.

Today’s fast pace is somewhat difficult for me to accept and get adjusted to. Perhaps I adjust a bit slower because the technological and science leaps towards advancement are at times intimidating. I correlate this  somehow to be robbing human beings of their essence thus,  making them  impersonal. This could very well be the attribution as to why I have never fully become immersed or integrated into an individualistic society. Perhaps I lean more and prefer to be part of a collectivistic society. This might also explain why I prefer qualitative research methods versus quantitative ones.

I am a hybrid of many learned behaviors and cultures. A colorful and flavorful combination resulting in the assembly and uniqueness of a human being. This was the purposed intention of our existence, as we are all uniquely chiseled to some degree just to be the way we were designed for any given moment.

I opted long ago to live a life that had meaning and purpose by being vulnerable rather than pretending to be someone who I am not.  I dislike and do not accept injustices and continue being a stand for the marginalized  and voiceless. True freedom resides in your heart, soul and mind. I am a daughter, sister, wife, mother, friend and dreamer within my  circle of loved ones.  I am also known to be a realist,  humanitarian, philosopher, life coach, giver, visionary and peacemaker to those whom with honor, respect and the will of servitude I humbly served. I am simply a human being...

Raised in a developing country and educated in a developed country, having witnessed poverty and injustices during my extensive travels, my experiences awakened the calling to be part of the paradigm shift towards "change". I embrace and interpret “change” to be the contribution towards the transformation for a better and peaceful world. As I gingerly plant a seed of HOPE every day as I walk this journey called life, my passion continues. My heart’s desire is that our collaborative works benefits all in this world and future generations. Bridging our talents will empower our organizations, our communities and us. Let’s create, promote and sacrifice for the betterment of others.
