North Region
Alejandra Carmona is very new to NM MESA as North Region Coordinator and is honored to take on this amazing journey!  Alejandra is originally from Chihuahua, Mexico but was raised in Albuquerque, NM.  She holds a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology, Spanish and American Studies from the University of New Mexico.  Having graduated from South Valley Academy Charter School, where she learned and found love for community service and the importance of higher education, she brings to the table passion for improving the livelihood of historically marginalized people and communities.  Alejandra believes in giving back to the communities that have given her a space to grow, learn and become an all-around better person. As North Region Coordinator she envisions to support schools and empower students of all cultural backgrounds to attain high achievement in STEM fields and in any other learning endeavor they might have. She looks forward to learning from everyone who is a part of MESA and enjoying all the adventures to come! Alejandra enjoys spending time with her significant other (Mario), reading biographies, dancing, laughing, painting, listening to slam poetry, photography and identifying plants. Favorite slam poets are: Andrea Gibson, George Watsky, Sarah Kay, Shane Hawley and Mary K Fons.  These poets are a few people whom she admires due to their strong standing for their beliefs and speaking about reality of the world.
