Outside the world, people think Nicaragua is a country in war, where people are not capable of achieving things the way a powerful country would. But Sexto Sentido comes to erase all those beliefs. It's a TV soap that's being broad casted every Sunday and it shows the world of many young man and women, each in a different situation and different perspectives. It's amazing the way they have emulated the reality of young people in Nicaragua and let's hope this series can be shown all over the world. They won the Special Latino award for excellence on the last Shine Awards and they have won many other awards because of the way they have promoted a new and better reality for people in Nicaragua, without violence, abuse, HIV, drugs, discrimination, etc. Way to go, Puntos de Encuentro!
