This video portrait tells the inspiring story of Floida, a young Kichwa woman and indigenous student in the Peruvian Amazon. Leaving her far away community in the Putumayo river to come to the city of Iquitos and pursue her dream of higher education, Floida's story is one of perserverance, hope and success in a reality where indigenous youth face unequal opportunities and multiple challenges.
STAY TUNED! We will release the full video portrait "Floida" at the end of 2017.
