Enrique Santos

Enrique is a full-time writer from Bogotá, Colombia with a degree in International Affairs and History. He believes the internet has changed the game when it comes to writing, and now it’s all about providing value and finding your niche.

Due to the many hardships his country has suffered because of the war on drugs, Enrique acquired an interest in these matters from an early age. Shortly after college, he landed a job with a member of the Colombian House of Representatives and spearheaded the creation of an ambitious harm reduction proposal. The bill has the goal of seriously revamping the way Colombia offers aid to those dependent on drugs and is currently making its way through congress.

Enrique now focuses on writing for a variety of online publications and is hoping to release some fiction soon.
