I am passionate about
ActionsIn 2013, after negotiating and dealing with the directors, I co-founded the
first Official, Student-Led Federation in HIV and AIDS Awareness for a whole
University in Mexico.
BIDESIDA UANL (Search, Diffusion of Information and Education about AIDS, by
the acronym in Spanish), made a change in the way university students see HIV
and AIDS, while we reached the 174,000 students of the UANL, the third
largest university in Mexico.
It was the first time that the UANL addressed AIDS as an urgent, local,
public need, instead of perceiving it as isolated cases in the community, or
something that was happening only in another continent.
Aside of the constant negotiations to keep the project alive, both
politically and economically, my duties as the first President of BIDESIDA,
were working together to generate HIV prevention among young people, without
prejudices and with scientific knowledge, through conferences, visits to
schools, media appearances, workshops, and events.
In 2014, after finishing my tenure as President of BIDESIDA UANL, I was
chosen as the first Scientist to be designed as Member of the Youth Council
of the US Consulate General in Monterrey. I was part of the Council for two
years, before winning the prestigious Chevening Scholarship of the British
Government to study the MPH Public Health (International Health) at The
University of Nottingham in 2016.
In 2018, I won Tabasco's Youth State Award for Academic Merit.
Currently, I’m a member of diverse international networks, as the UK
Chevening Alumni, the US State Department Alumni, the International AIDS
Society, the Leaders of Tomorrow in Biotechnology of the Global Biotech
Revolution, the Young Leaders of Biotech in LATAM of Allbiotech, the
Fraternity of University Leaders of the UANL. In 2018, I joined the One Young
World Community after winning the Young Health Programme Scholarship and
attending to the Summit held at The Hague, The Netherlands.
