“Transhuella is a tribute to the Colombian cultural diversity. It has taught me, from the simplicity of oneself, to recognize that there are people who think, eat, act, feel, live, and express themselves differently, to find something so simple that bring us together, taking us to the same road, happiness”, says Manuela.
