Our hats are off to this incredible woman who suffers from debilitating fibromyalgia and still managed to run a marathon! "While I experience extreme pain on a daily basis, I've never let it hold me back. I'm a fervent supporter of female empowerment, and I try to pay it forward by employing other women. I pays fair wages so that they can support themselves and their families.," she says.
Alejandra has won eight awards so far for her talent and artwork, including Guadalajara's Design Week Competition, the 2014 Presea Ocelote, and is looking forward to receiving her next award in November in Argentina.
Even when odds were against Alejandra with no cure for her fibromyalgia diagnosis, she found the strength to change her life for the better and conquer the impossible - running a marathon.
Alejandra uses and continues to hand down traditional techniques to the youth in her workshop who, now carry on her same methods.
Alejandra has built her jewelry workshop with NOVICA and is now able to give work to some incredibly dedicated women.
