Three graduates from EGADE Business School - Tecnológico de Monterrey appear in the third season of Outliers, the series that compiles exceptional stories of students, Tec alumni, and other inspiring people who form part of the Tec community.

“Outliers” are individuals who found a unique path towards their goals and successfully fulfilled them, and who, also, with their actions, generate a positive impact on society and change the world.

Here are the three EGADE alumni’s stories.

MARYANGEL GARCÍA-RAMOS: " My goal is to be happy and open the door for more people be happy too”

The EGADE MBA graduate in Monterrey is the founder of the organization Mexican Women with Disabilities and head of the Diversity and Inclusion Office at Tec de Monterrey.

When she was 13, doctors detected an arteriovenous malformation around her spinal cord, and since then she has lived with a motor disability.

She studied fashion design and in parallel discovered a passion for making diversity and inclusion topics more visible for persons with disabilities; she has been a speaker for the past 14 years.

“Having been in a wheelchair for more than half my life and done so many things so far, from serving as a representative and running an NGO, to working in the international company Mars, in Culture and Inclusion, and founding Mexican Women with Disabilities, I have decided to undertake the mission of ensuring that what we do will truly help to reduce inequalities and achieve a far more inclusive world,” Maryangel stated.

YOKU SASHIDA: “I think that having your life thrown off balance isn’t something bad; at times falling with style is necessary.”

The EGADE MBA graduate in Guadalajara is the co-founder of Soluciones Kenko, a company that creates and develops technologies for improving and saving lives.

As an entrepreneur, he developed a medical device called ECGlove, an electrocardiogram in the form of a glove. You just have to touch the upper part of the patient’s chest with the glove to determine the electrical activity and receive a diagnosis. When he couldn’t find a contract manufacturer to support their innovation, he and his business partner decided to found their company in 2017.

“As an entrepreneur, it is almost impossible to sleep well knowing for certain that everything will be all right. There is a constant feeling of uncertainty and anxiety that eats away at you as a person and that can easily be transmitted to your work group. Therefore, I consider that the biggest challenge one faces is to be resilient,” Yoku explained.

MÓNICA CAMACHO: “Entrepreneurship is not an activity, it’s a mindset.”

The graduate from the Full-Time MBA in Innovation & Entrepreneurship in Guadalajara is the co-founder of La Cosita Chula, a company that seeks o professionalize the Mexican artisan industry, developing products that mix tradition with innovation.

The initiative was selected as one of the most relevant social enterprises in Latin America by the program Young Leadership of the Americas Initiative.

“I realized that we need to question the status quo more often and get out of our comfort zones to achieve great things,” Mónica affirmed.
