Monica has interest and practice both in Depth-Archetypal Psychology and Mythology, as well as many years of training as a social and media researcher –that included organizing the projects and being in contact with people, connecting with them in their own “codes” or ways of expression.

Her being a mixed-blood and cross-cultured person, in the literal and metaphorical sense, and her willingness for sharing her experience and knowledge and putting them into the service of others, will be in the service of the empathy and connection with Malintzin’s target groups.
