In 2009 she moved to Monterrey to study a B.A. in Spanish Language and Literature in Tecnologico de Monterrey. In 2013 she worked in a Marketing Consultancy on Real State projects as part of the Internal Communication staff. In 2014 she discovered her passion to teach and research. Since then, she has taught Spanish, Literature, History, and Art to students of a high school in Monterrey. In 2016 she developed an academic project called “Sustainable Tourism at a local stage”. Through this experience, she has immersed in social entrepreneurship topics in low-economy communities.
