Hailing from Bogotá, Colombia, Alejandra will be documenting stories from Southeast Asia and Latin America for BreakDengue.org and readers like you. She has a degree in Social Communication & Journalism with extensive professional experience from 4 countries in the communications field. As part of her master’s degree, she is casino researching online activism and its impact in developing countries. Her focus is on local dengue initiatives.

Passionate about travelling, photography, sustainable development, and education, her current mission is to find local initiatives that are fighting and minimizing the effects of dengue every day. She will find those local actors and their stories, sharing how tangible differences are being made.
