"To continue defending human rights from exile is a great challenge, but for me it has meant breaking down that imaginary line that we call a border, because the defence of human rights goes beyond the place where we are, at the same time it has meant recognising me as a human being, defending my rights and my life, seeing myself from exile as a woman with rights. 

From this piece of land where I am, despite the kilometres, nothing stops me from continuing to work and making the Nicaraguan socio-political situation visible."
