Alejandra is a persevering and teachable young woman from the city of Villa Angela in the Chaco province located in northeast Argentina. Her childhood was marked by financial difficulties and conflict within her parents’ marriage, eventually ending in divorce. Navigating this experience as a young teenager left her reeling and searching for belonging. Alejandra was forced to leave her childhood behind when she became pregnant at age fifteen. She vividly shares how this impacted her life and her relationship with God, “As a young mom, a teenager myself, I felt like I had failed and disappointed God. However, I learned that my actions did not make God’s love for me decrease, on the contrary, He was pleased to pour out His grace and mercy on me.” Experiencing the Lord in the midst of these trials enabled her to overcome the criticism and shame she encountered on a daily basis. Eventually marrying the father of her child, they have invested their lives in pursuing youth in their community through Young Life, walking alongside them and sharing the grace of Jesus.

Now a Developing Global Leader, Alejandra is attending IESVA Higher Level Institute of Villa Angela and pursuing a teaching degree. She hopes to teach mathematics and have a consistent role in her students’ lives. Alejandra’s goal in the DGL program is to grow as a leader and be a voice of hope and love in her community.
