Once she finished high school, she began her professional career at the Universidad Centro Occidental Lisandro Alvarado, a journey full of active and leading participation in student leadership and various clubs such as the CDCHT, a space dedicated to promoting scientific productivity and technical quality committed to the development process of the region and the country. She also participated in the student extensionist club, whose mission was to take the university to the communities, undoubtedly a career full of leadership and social commitment that led her to graduate as a Civil Engineer committed to social assistance. She thinks that the construction of a more creative society is linked to education through art, since it promotes new themes and approaches that stimulate the imagination; that society in general should reflect and consider the culture of coexistence and empathy from the perspective of children, especially if the formulation of solutions is structured from the artistic vision, she feels that education is extremely important, because it opens a window of opportunity for people to build a different future. We present her projects, all linked to children’s education and social transformation of children and adolescents, especially those at risk.
Andreina Suárez has an impulse that inspires new actions in the Venezuelan artistic and educational world. She has managed to lead various projects of children’s education and social transformation through art. In 2015 she assumed the editorial direction of the book: Lara: Mi Museo Imaginario, taking care of the aesthetics, layout, writing and coordinating the iconographic search. This experience led her to the creation of Galería Piso 8 Fine Art in 2016, and its consolidation as a cultural promoter with high social sensitivity, since in parallel she developed La Flor de la Esperanza, an educational venture aimed at 50 girls with high intellectual abilities at risk.
