"I want every girl to realize that no dream is big enough."

Alejandra Gaytan

I graduated from...

The University of Texas at Austin with a Bachelors in English and a minor in Government. 

Before joining Con Mi MADRE I was...

fresh out of college. A couple of months afterwards I started working as a Community Worker for the City of Austin in their Health and Human Services Department. 

I joined Con Mi MADRE because...

I believe in the mission that Con Mi MADRE stands for and I want to be an active member of the incredible impact that this organization has on young women. All young women should have the support of those surrounding them in order to work towards a successful future and I want to be part of that support system. As a Latina myself, I want to encourage and instill determination in young Latinas to become better than they ever thought they could be in a professional, social, and emotional level. Most importantly, I want every girl to realize that no dream is big enough.
