Communications Co-Director Flor Bretón-García is passionate about intercultural communication. She wants to bring more voices that need to be heard to FIGT.
Can you please briefly describe your FIGT role?
I’m Co-Chair Director for Communications. I share the responsibility for external and internal communications with my colleague and co-chair Sarah Black.
What inspired you to stand for this particular office?
I’ve been part of FIGT’s volunteering workforce for eight months now. I treasure the values of the organization and the diversity of its members.
I’m also passionate about intercultural communications and digital content for nonprofit groups, so it seemed like a great opportunity for me to apply for this office and try to make it happen. I feel that I can make an important impact within the cross-cultural community.
Anything you particularly hope to accomplish this year? What do you look forward to?
My focus this year is to continue bringing the values of FIGT to more people around the world. There are still too many voices that need to be heard and being part of the communications team gives me the possibility to reach out to all those who aren’t part of FIGT yet.
Your favorite thing about being a part of FIGT?
I love being surrounded by people with different backgrounds and ideas, the sense of community, and the possibility of using my skills to help others in transition.
Can you share a random piece of info about yourself please?
I’m crazy about the beach. The blue waters of the Caribbean Sea and the Indian Ocean are definitely my happy place. I think growing up in Venezuela and living very close to the sea became part of my cultural identity and personality.
Please share some words of wisdom for FIGT members and globally mobile people in general
Please don’t be afraid to raise your voice to support your own ideas and those of the people you believe in. Find the way to connect with others to use your skills to make the world a better place for all those in need, especially those families living abroad.
It is your energy and commitment that FIGT and the globally mobile community need to make their transition path as meaningful as possible!
