Hi everyone! My name is Jessica, I am the President of the Cambridge University Mexican Society this year. My research at Cambridge aims to expand discussions on migration, ethnic minorities, racism and xenophobia in order to build more inclusive, fair and prosperous communities. As well as representing you at a University level, I am responsible for ensuring that the committee creates a welcoming, respectful and responsible atmosphere with inspiring discussions, socially-engaged events, and exciting opportunities for you to participate in. I hope your experience with the Mexican Society is enjoyable, fulfilling and fun. If you have any ideas, we will be more than happy to hear from you!

I am a PhD student at the Wellcome Sanger Institute, where I study the impact of genetic variation in the function of our immune system. I am originally from Cuautitlan Izcalli, a small suburb in the metropolitan area of Mexico City. In addition to science I am interested in literature and music (I play the guitar). I currently serve as the Secretary of CUMexSoc, organizing events to bring together the vibrant community of Mexicans in Cambridge
I have a degree in communication sciences with a specialty in advertising and marketing, I also have studies in entrepreneurship and innovation. I have forged my professional career working for big brands of consumer goods companies and recently managing exhibitions and cultural festivals for Mexico and Colombia. I am proud to be part of Mexican society because it gives me the opportunity to support my experience and be part of the diffusion we can give to our beautiful Mexico from Cambridge UK.
