To help people from all over the world write their auto-biographies, and the biographies of their loved ones. All in the hope of spreading compassion, understanding, empathy, and a sense of unity in diversity, all across the globe.
The Biography International Organization has been years in the making. The idea for the foundation was originally conceived in 2010 by Edgar Bonilla. With the application process, at that particular time, taking up to 3 years, Edgar, a returning college student, concentrated on finishing school, but the idea for The B.I.O. was always on his mind. Now a graduate student in 2013, Edgar knew the charity needed legal representation, but the fees, as well as other startup costs, were much more than anticipated. In 2014, he focused on writing his thesis and adamantly resolved to finish saving funds for The B.I.O. After a couple of years of saving, along with the help of his family, in 2016 the non-profit was able to retain a law firm. In 2017, The B.I.O. officially became a tax-exempt non-profit organization.
Born and raised in Los Angeles, Edgar Bonilla is a philosopher (a.k.a., a lover of wisdom) working on his first book, tentatively entitled “Auto-Biographical Manifestations.” Extremely passionate about philosophy, history, and life, in general, Edgar is an enthusiast of all forms of art and literature. Mostly self-taught, he holds a B.A. in political science from National University, and also wrote a master’s thesis in history concerning the applicability of historiographical theories to the auto-biography. He lives in Los Angeles with his two children.
