Project Description

Paulina Lezama

Consultant

I moved to London in 2010 because I wanted to work in a city with a vision, where ideas are generated. Also, my brother was already living here, which made my decision easier. Since then, I have had the privilege of working with organizations such as the International Criminal Court, the United Nations, and the United Kingdom Cabinet. Recently, I started to work as a strategist and agent of systemic change for non-profit organizations, social entrepreneurs and companies that are leading the transformation towards a more sustainable world.

I am also the mother of a little boy and making sure that he grows up feeling Mexican has become my most important challenge. We travel to Mexico frequently and we talk with my family practically every day, but I think it’s the little things we do every day that count the most; from the music we listen to, to eating “sopa de fideo” in winter, to celebrating the Day of the Dead and Día de Reyes, to always having tortillas, avocados, and limes at home. However, I dream of more. I have recently realized that big changes are needed within the Mexican educational system in order to ensure the future of our children. My dream is to contribute to this change in the coming years.
