From 2010 to 2015, he studied Psychology in an effort to develop a deeper and more complex view of the world In 2012, he joined a group of entrepreneurs in co-founding 100 in 1 Day, an international active citizenship movement. He also worked or volunteered for various organizations including: Misión País Colombia, The Art of Living Foundation, Corporación Vínclos and PwC. All of these experiences have led him to concretize his sense of purpose.
Camilo has a deep passion for holistic education as a means to empower individuals and to create a positive and sustainable change in the world.
That’s why, after receiving his master's in Social Entrepreneurship, a degree that defines the person and professional he wants to be for the rest of his life, he returned to Colombia to co-found Quántica and bring it to life.
Camilo firmly believes that knowledge and creative ideas, like values, make sense only if they are lived.

Alejandra is a Design student at Universidad de los Andes. She is especially interested in user-centered strategic and innovation design, and she focuses mostly in the investigation and observation steps of design. There she seeks to understand people and the context they are in, in order to propose effective, relevant and coherent interventions.
"I am a person who enjoys reflection and introspection, because of the challenge it involves, and the way it has changed my vision of life. Also, I think we complain too much but we do very little to change it. That is why I am so proud and thankful to be part of Quantica, where I want to understand all that I question about traditional education, so that I can propose a change from passion, design, and of course, practice.
