Alejandra’s bio

Alejandra Tamez is the founder of Ixaya-Yulu, an online ethical boutique that seeks to shed light on the social injustice and underepresentation of the indigenous people of Mexico. The business mission is to support and help preserve the livelihoods, wellbeing, and cultural values of rural indigenous families and their communities through fair trade and ethical purchasing. After spending a year in Nicaragua and Costa Rica working with different nonprofits– including Operation Smile, Because We Care, and Montessori Kids CR, she decided to merge her passion and her skills and thus, Ixaya-Yulu was born.

During her free time, Alejandra enjoys biking around Georgetown, catching a Wiz game, and spending time with her family. She was born in Monterrey, Mexico and moved to Washington, DC, in 2014 after obtaining her Masters in Public Administration with a focus in nonprofit management.
