Lawyer, International Consultant and Author

Oreste Del Río

Welcome to my page, I am Oreste Del Rio, I was born in Panama, and since I was a child my dreams were to become a lawyer, a career that I studied in Panama and became one of the first great achievements of my life, I am passionate about Political Science, a field in which I took some specializations, I have a Masters in Public Policy Security and Defence that I studied in Spain; I married the love of my life, Maria Fernanda and I strive every day to continue learning, hoping to be a little better in what I do and what I am now.
I believe in education as the main tool for solving social problems, as well as in discipline as the main virtue for success.
I feel that time is like an irreplaceable treasure and values like the essential virtues of a good leader.
Here is a more formal list of my education and professional background.

"We are ambassadors for our people wherever we are... just as the love we show for where we come from will determine the motivation of those we can inspire to move to experience what makes us so happy and so proud."
