Passionate about cultural diversity, education and artistic expression. With more than 10 years of experience, she has worked in non-profit organizations, participating in the organization, production and dissemination of international multicultural festivals, projects and initiatives that promote education, science, culture and the arts.
She has worked to disseminate and support social entrepreneurship projects aimed at disadvantaged communities and minority groups through initiatives such as Gifted Citizen, Pitch@Palace, RSA (The Royal Society for the Arts) and C2 Montreal. During her participation in projects such as MEX I AM and Rethinking G20, she has had the opportunity to collaborate on initiatives to promote cultural diversity and relations between Mexico and other countries through the Mexican Consulate in San Francisco, the Center for Latin American Studies at the University of California at Berkeley, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and in collaboration with UNESCO under the MOST programme, among others.
As coordinator of international festivals, she has had the opportunity to disseminate the work of scientists and researchers from different countries, as well as to promote artistic and cultural expressions. Her time at the Mexican Ministry of Culture, as an advisor in strategic planning projects, gave her first-hand knowledge not only of the tangible needs of artists, but also of their importance and the benefits they bring to society. Her goal is to make different artistic and cultural expressions accessible, promote tolerance and respect and build bridges of understanding between different countries and cultures.
As an immigrant welcomed by the community of Montreal, a cosmopolitan and multicultural city, she is convinced that cultural diversity stimulates creativity and allows us to renew ideas. This cultural diversity gives us the opportunity to open up to others and develop new ways of thinking. She is currently working on the organisation of intercultural mediation events with educational institutions and the NDG community, developing awareness-raising activities with community organisations and partners in order to harmonise efforts and strengthen relations between allophone cultural communities and members of the host society.
