Lorena Jasso

Hello! My name is Lorena Jasso and I'm 35 years old. I'm from Guadalajara, Mexico and I still live here. I love music, reading, and watching movies and TV shows. Also, I love to travel and discover new places, people, food, traditions, etc. This has helped me to keep on marveling at my surroundings. Currently, I'm an English teacher at a prep school belonging to the University of Guadalajara. I've been teaching English for 9 years to teenagers from 12-18 years old. I love working with young people! I'm always fascinated by their ability to create amazing things. I personally believe that what you work in doesn’t define who you are. Since I was a kid I’ve shown an interest in science. Although I didn’t pursue that path, I always want to learn more about how our universe works. Those are the reasons why, when they invited me to collaborate in Space Messengers, I immediately said yes. I'm glad you've shown interest in this program because it will allow expanding your vision of the universe around you. Looking from other angles and perspectives in life completes our own. A last word of advice... remain curious!
