Congratulations to current PhD student and Founding Class alumna Luisa Javier (MS’10) on recognition as a Distinguished Mexican Abroad. Luisa, an entrepreneur and industrial engineer, was honored in a virtual award ceremony in November.  

Together with recent alumna Sandra Medina (PhD '20), Luisa co-founded the biotechnology-based startup WAYAK Group and developed WAYAKIT, a compact, organic and portable multi-cleaner and odor remover. 

The Institute of Mexicans Abroad award recognizes Mexicans living outside the country who make extraordinary achievements that promote Mexican accomplishments within their new country of residence.
