“ALL IN” Yarazet Moreno Borjas and the Young Professionals Corps

Yarazet-moreno-borjas-PSYDEH Non Profit NGO for Women in Mexico Young Corps Program 2019PSYDEH is excited to celebrate the good work by Yarazet Moreno Borjas, one of the members of our inaugural Young Professionals Corps.

Yarazet is a recent graduate in Gerontology from the Autonomous University of the State of Hidalgo (UAEH), and participant in the new federal program “Jóvenes construyendo el futuro (Youth Building the Future)” through which PSYDEH acts as her tutor for a 12 month-service work experience.

“With PSYDEH,” Yarazet writes, “I am learning from all those who make up the A.C., its team of Mexicans and foreigners, women and men, indigenous and non-indigenous. I am passionate about helping people. And PSYDEH teaches us, empowers us, as indigenous and non-indigenous women, marginalized and not marginalized, to know how to demand our rights in all aspects of our environment. I love that our women partners learn from us, and we learn a lot from interacting with them; we all learn to be more resilient in our everyday life. And, together, we are developing our country in a sustainable way.”

During her first six months, Yarazet supports PSYDEH with Tulancingo, Hgo office tasks, project production and Mexico City-office work on web-based marketing, public relations and social media, with a special focus on the Mexican target market. In her second six-month period, she will lead PSYDEH’s first Mexico-centric crowdfunding campaign and incubate a pilot-project initiative at the nexus of PSYDEH’s human rights and human development work and her professional interests as a gerontologist.

Yarazet says,

“Because there is not much work as a Gerontologist, I must be very creative with my strategy to earn money while gaining professional work experience. Yes. Having two jobs is not easy emotionally or personally. I work with PSYDEH every Monday, Tuesday and weekends. I work as an elderly caregiver 24 hours per day from Wednesday through Friday. But work is work. I want to learn, earn and grow by having a sustainable career where I am making a concrete impact.”
