Alejandra is a Health Coach (Alejandra Cortés Coach) and President of the Axtel Foundation. She has always felt a responsibility to give back a little bit of the generosity that life has given her. As a result, she has spent 15 years promoting philanthropy through the Axtel Foundation.

"The valuable participation of collaborators who have shared their time, knowledge, and heart to support the different programs is an invaluable treasure."
For the past 15 years, the Axtel Foundation has benefited over 550 thousand people through more than 250 projects in 39 cities across the country.
