Monica Alvarado

Monica was born and raised in Mexico. She went to college and received her bachelor's degree in Education. She worked as an Operations Manager for an international communications company until age 28 when she decided to serve a full-time mission. She served in Sinaloa, Mexico. Upon returning she moved to the U.S., Monica got a certification to teach abroad, and moved to China where she met the love of her life and got married. Currently, she and her husband live in Suzhou, China. She works at an international school teaching languages as she stills considers teaching one of her long-time passions. Her experience in China has been one of a kind: A compassionate, expanding, and healing journey in which feeling uncomfortable has taught her to see, act and love just as Jesus would do.
