As the Marketing and Event coordinator, Alejandra puts into practice the lessons she has learned throughout her academic and professional experiences, both in Canada and abroad.
Alejandra’s interdisciplinary background includes working in higher education, grass-roots civil society organizations, and volunteering in Latin America. She also completed a Master’s in Development Practice from the University of Waterloo, and has an Honours B.A from McMaster University in Communications and Anthropology. All of these experiences have helped Alejandra value the importance of efficient and meaningful communication, research, critical thinking and intercultural relations.
Driven by the promotion of sustainable and resilient livelihoods as well as advocacy for environmental and climate justice, Alejandra wants to help make her city of residence an example to follow in the battle against climate change. She believes that we are constantly learning from each other, and by working together, we can succeed at protecting our planet for future generations.
For a few years, Alejandra has also developed a passion for photography, which she now uses to capture memorable moments in nature and different environments. She is looking to improve her skills so she can continue to share those brief, but amazing moments.
