Hello everyone! I'm Angelica Sanchez, but all my friends call me Angie. I am from Mexico and I study at Tecnologico de Monterrey, Monterrey's Campus. I apologize in advance because my English has been stored for several months and it's dusty,
I have participated in the program called "Creating Communities for Development", first as an student in order to complete my social service hours, then as coordinator of a tutoring program for English called "Tutores de Ingles" and now I am an advisor for the project, the current coordinators, students too, and I are working in the re-structuring of the program to provide a greater impact in the communities where the program is taught.
In 2009 I was the Coordinator of Social Development of the Alumni Society in my career that's why the Campus Department of Social Development offered me take over the English program and although it had no connection with what I'm studying, the idea pleased me. I first became involved in the program as a tutor, to learn more about what the TEC sought. When I went to my first class in the community that I was assigned, San Gilberto, I was very satisfied with my students because the 16 people who attended did so because they wanted to and not because they were forced. From there, it has been hard for me to drop the program because after two years working in the same community, you feel part of it.
In Madrid I hope to share experiences with people from other universities and organizations with two main objectives: to share what my university is doing and to gain tips to improve the program in Monterrey. This is not the first time that I travel outside Mexico, but it is the first time that I'm going out of America, so I'm a little scared =D
I am currently very involved in student activities so when I am not doing homework or school's stuff, I focus on the responsibilities I have as part of my campus student government. On weekends, however, I usually go to the movies, because I love them, I'm with my friends, take photographs or I spendtime on the computer designing things.
Ja! The last questions are complicated, well If I had to describe myself in one word it would be determined and If I could have any wish come true, It would definitely be eliminate violence today attacks north of my country.
I am very excited about the trip to Madrid and I hope we can enjoy and exploit the most of this opportunity. For now, let me share my twitter (http://www.twitter.com/AngieSanchez0) and facebook (http://www.facebook.com/angiesanchez0) because you know, social networks connect the world now. = D
