About me & my work:

My name is Franklin Murillo, I am a 30 years old Costa Rican, proud dad and a global social entrepreneur.

I started my professional life as a teacher, my background is in education. But once I created my first social business, I realized that I needed a change on my life, so I quitted and started to fight for my dreams. My first start up turned into a big failure but helped me to move out from my comfort zone and to seek my purpose on life.

Now, 6 years later, I I got an MBA. and I am finishing a Masters Degree on Project Management. I am the founder of Miguia, an educational network that gives support and advice to more than 44 000 mothers in Latin America, awarded by the OAS (an international political organization in the Americas). In 2012 I was hired as the General and Founding Manager of FundaciĆ³n Gente, a NGO aimed at improving the educational system in Costa Rica. And right now I am leading a process to create a global youth movement to change the way we perceive nations' success in a more holistic way, moving from the GDP to the Social Progress Index approach.

I love to share with people with passion for social change and grow with them. I am a One Young World Ambassador, a Young Challenger of the Grameen Creative Lab among a lot of crazy but well driven causes around the world.
