Hi, I’m Alejandra Sánchez, i was born in Bogotá, Colombia, in 1994. My father was an engineer as was my mother’s father. Conversely, my mother although hard work managed to get a degree and thus embark on the career of to be counter.
By the time I was in my childhood, I went to Nuestra Señora de la Paz school during eleven years; after that, I graduated and my family had achieved middle class status and I was able to go to Julio Garavito, engineering’s college. But after a couple of months decided I wouldn’t only get to the bottom of things of civil engineering. In that moment i don't had any idea what career to do. And my father decided enroll me in a University that I didn’t wanted to go, that was “Minuto de Dios” for that reason I decided revenge me and i chose the last career that i ever thought studying, Journalism. Bit by bit, I got involved with what we then called the “journalism movement,” advocating for better health and education care for people and greater access to information than we had at that time.
A couple of years later I made the rash decision to quit my teaching job at National College of Colombia and become a full-time writer. My big break was a feature story for “week magazine” called “the social movement” it became a cover story. My long work life settled in essays and opinion pieces about inequality and books that explain the political problem since communication view.
