Esteban GalvezMaster of Public Policy

Before graduating as a lawyer from Universidad Javeriana in Bogota, Colombia, I took a loan and used my savings to make a 7,500 miles trip that shaped me: Working at an orphanage in Tanzania familiarized me with the world’s most pressing issues.

These lessons motivated me to dedicate my life to build local capacities, fight poverty, aid displaced populations and combat corruption. Thus, I worked for three years as Chief of Staff and Head of International Cooperation at the Office of Colombia’s Inspector – Attorney General. In these positions, I led a project to sign a resolution to provide nationalities to over 25,000 stateless children of Venezuelan migrants, and defended UN’s mandate and presence in my country.

Before Blavatnik, I worked as Colombia’s Country Manager of Gerencia del Poder, a Mexican consultancy focused on public policy. I have been a One Young World Delegate and will pursue my MPP at Oxford as a Chevening Scholar.
