Jazmín Manrique Vigueras | Field Corps Leader
My name is Jazmín Manrique Vigueras and I’m a native speaker of ñuhu (Indigenous language from la Sierra Madre Oriental). I was born in Mexico City on September 3, 1996, but my family is from the community of San Esteban, in the municipality of Huehuetla, state of Hidalgo, so I grew up in a rural environment, where coffee, corn, citrus and backyard animals are produced. I studied basic education in my place of origin, from preschool through high school, where I obtained recognition for school achievement and academic accomplishments, among them, the “Convivencia Cultural 2009” and the XII Hispanic Spelling Contest in Pachuca de Soto, Hidalgo.
I studied a degree in Sustainable Development at the Intercultural University of the State of Hidalgo (UICEH), in the municipality of Tenango de Doria, where I currently reside.
Living in Huehuetla and Tenango de Doria has allowed me to learn about the dynamics in which men and women develop, the habits, challenges and problems related to gender, as well as the strategies to support the population needs, individually and collectively.
Through PSYDEH, A.C., I see an opportunity where together, we can reach more women in the region, be a means through which they can be informed and implement proposals based on their own notions and opinions, establish effective communication in the native language and work based on the needs raised.
