Destined to Make an Impact

Finding solutions to the problems faced by poor communities in my country is the path I must continue to follow. My past experiences and my future plans are aimed at contributing to the formulation of Mexico’s development strategy. I also want to consolidate our social economy organization and expand our project to other communities around my town. I want to teach girls to work together as a team, share ideas to develop projects, and make a difference.

Life Lessons

My Arcadia experience was defined by interacting with people from different backgrounds. With this, I realized that the only differences between us are language, religion, and skin color. We are all human with similar values and beliefs.  

Best Advice

Always have a vision, think big, believe in yourself, work hard, and contribute to the common good. Do not give up, and always persevere to reach your goal despite the situations. Remember, in this world there are people who trust us. We are not alone.

Always have a vision, think big, believe in yourself, work hard, and contribute to the common good.
