Merida, Mexico
Course Facilitator

Miren B. Malaxechevarria worked at the Educational Department of the American Embassy in Madrid for 19 years (led the student Internship Program for 16 to 18 year olds of the Educational Section), prior to working at the Spanish Mission to the United Nations in New York. At that time, she discovered the stress that teenagers suffer living in diplomat expatriate families that change country every 3 years. She later suffered it herself when her family had to move to Mexico with her children, 16 and 17 years old, and decided to concentrate her educational counseling effort to this specific discipline. Miren has a Masters degree in Communication by ESERP Madrid. Miren says: "I am particularly interested in teenagers of expatriate families, and in insecure kids that have interpersonal relation problems with other kids."

Miren belongs to a united family with more than 40 cousins, that lives in the same small town. This has fed an active relationship with adults, cousins, nieces and nephews. "Living in a small community in my childhood helped me to create healthy relationships with the rest of the residents."

Miren delivers Power to Parent l: Vital Connection; Power to Parent ll: Helping Children Grow Up; Power to Parent lll: Common Challenges in Mexico City.
