Jehyson is our Ambassador of the month from Cali in Colombia! He is a very active contributor who joined us as Ambassador in September 2017. We wanted to thank him for his efforts and dedication, that's why we chose him to be our Ambassador of the month of January. We asked him a few questions, take a look at his answers below.
Three words to best describe you:
Professional, honest and disciplined.
If you were to write a book about yourself, what would you name it?
What is your hidden talent?
My hidden talent is to be an entrepreneur and a businessman.
A favorite line from a movie?
That would be the lines from the episodes of the TV-show "The Penguins of Madagascar" - I like them a lot, and they always remind me of friends and family values through the teamwork of the 4 penguins Skipper, Kowalski, Rico and Cabo.
If you could travel anywhere right now, where would you go and why?
There would be several countries I would like to go, because one of my passions is to travel around the world, getting to know new cultures, landscapes, customs, etc. Right now, I would say that Japan is a country on the forefront of new technologies with a very well-organized culture, which is worth seeing and knowing.
About your country
What is your favorite local food or drink?
My favorite food is "Sancocho Beef" served with "Agua panela con limon" - a brew composed of brown cane sugar and lemon.
Traditional Colombian food and baverage :)
Give us a fun fact about your country:
Something very typical that is done in my country, and especially in my city Cali, is called "paseo de olla" which is going on a Sunday-trip with the family, down to the river and make lunch over a bonfire, while Coca-Cola is cooling down in the river :D
What is your favorite PrestaShop store?
I have seen many very professional and aesthetically designed stores, but my favorite is: www.bravafabrics.com
What opportunities does PrestaShop provide in your country?
PrestaShop provides many opportunities indeed, in my country e-commerce is developing and PrestaShop is the perfect tool for many businesses to start selling online in an easy and fast way, with minimal investment.
What is your feedback on the new major version, PrestaShop 1.7?
The change to a framework as well known and popular as Symfony is going to give PrestaShop a great stable base to reinforce its current and future functionalities. I think that such a big and important change, shouldn’t be launched too soon, because as programmer, I have encountered some problems. But in general I liked this new version 1.7. Congratulations for the innovations.
About being an Ambassador
What is your proudest moment as a PrestaShop Ambassador?
I had never spoken in public before I started as an ambassador, and real quick I got more comfortable talking in public and less nervous. I also liked sharing my knowledge with other people who also know PrestaShop or who just started their online commerce
What do you like the most about being an Ambassador?
I really enjoy being able to help promoting PrestaShop, since it makes it possible for many small entrepreneurs to fulfill their dream of having a business on the Internet and to get an extra income, which is very necessary in our country.
A last word?
Many thanks to PrestaShop for giving me the opportunity to be an ambassador and representing it in my country and city. I have achieved many things in my life thanks to the work that always comes from shops that use PrestaShop
