Alejandra Garza

Networks Advancement Manager at The Wellbeing Project


Ale is from a mountain filled city called Monterrey, in the North of Mexico. She started her career in strategic process consulting and project management. She studied Mechanical Engineering, and then worked 5 years in process consulting (mostly supply chain cost-efficiencies and logistics). In 2017 she launched a web platform for connecting volunteers with social causes in their city. This project came to life after launching a pro-bono consulting initiative in the consulting company she was working at, and this was what pivoted her consulting career into the social sector.

To this day, her work and projects have provided the opportunity for her to experience how things work and how people operate in the social sector (in Mexico specifically). She firmly believes that great things happen through collaboration and loves brainstorming ideas to get things done. Ale actively searches for new ways to improve and learn about herself and has taken 2 certifications on logotherapy by Centro OCCRE in Monterrey, Mexico. She is proud to call herself a Viktor Frankl advocate. She sees wellbeing as balance and unity, starting with herself so that that can lead to spreading the experience of wellbeing for all. She enjoys spending time with her family in nature, reading novels and admires horses for the deep empathy they share with people.

What does inner wellbeing mean to you?

I see wellbeing as balance, unity, and living with ease. Wellbeing means being responsible for myself, for what I am, think and do. Starting with myself, so that that can lead to spreading the experience of wellbeing for all.

How would you define wellbeing in one word?


Are there any rituals or practices you use to enhance your wellbeing?

I enjoy spending time in nature, going for walks, spending quality time with family and friends, and reading novels. I reflect and give thanks for my day each night, dedicate time to my physical health, whether that be with exercise, meditation or rest, and I also created a playlist a few years back that lifts me up and brings me back to center.

Why is it important that we prioritise individual and collective wellbeing?

They are all related and it is important that we start with ourselves, being congruent in acting how we’d like others to act and be as well.
