¡Hola! Permítanme presentarme, contarles un poco de mi vida, de cómo el destino da tantas vueltas y cómo pasas de tener un sueño a terminar haciendo algo totalmente diferente.
Hello! Allow me to introduce myself, tell you a little about my life, how fate takes so many twists and turns and how you go from having a dream to ending up doing something totally different
My name is Manuel Belmonte Benítez, I am 36 years old, I currently work as an environmental sanitation technician. I have been working in this field for 3 years and it is something that simply changed my way of thinking, in a certain way I added a new knowledge in the curriculum of life, that which is not reflected on paper, that which teaches you to solve certain situations or see the world differently.
It is strange to think about what I do today, I never imagined that I would work from this, in fact I did not know anything about this type of work before emigrating to Peru (I am from Cumaná, Sucre state, Venezuela). Why do I say it is weird? Because as a child I thought that my adulthood would be destined to art, it would be my world and my work, very #livedelarte. How beautiful are children's dreams! You do not yet know the stages of the life of youth. As a child you just want to continue with your dreams, improve, spend every day drawing, creating or trying to capture on the sheet or canvas what you saw, what you imagined.

But how was the desire to dream of being an artist born in me? One day in my childhood home, I don't remember if I was 6 or 7 years old, what I do remember clearly is seeing my Uncle Gerson draw on a blank paper and with a single pencil. How incredible! The truth was I just wanted to do the same, he at that moment became my inspiration. Then I saw him as a mentor, until he moved on with his life and moved into his own home. While I was growing up and not having my mentor by my side, I lost a bit of interest. Although I never stopped drawing, my interests changed, I went from wanting to be an artist to wanting to be bilingual, an athlete, chef, computer engineer, rock singer, broadcaster, writer, traveler. Many of these goals I have met halfway, others not, but art is a passion that has accompanied me, and will accompany me until the day I have to say goodbye to this earthly plane.

Leaving art aside, I studied: "Petroleum Refining Processes" but I don't practice it. I worked as a computer consultant until I emigrated in 2018. While in Peru I met a special person who is currently my girlfriend, Erika Marchan, later I will invite her to belong to this social network. And thanks to her and some contacts it was that I decided to try my luck in something totally different, and that is where I ended up reaching environmental sanitation.
Finally, I want to thank my friend e @ audiarmisg for introducing me to this platform (HIVE) where I can resume my dreams, and be able to share them with you, and remember: The limits are in the mind, you can always achieve what you set out to do! Thanks.
