Originally from Guadalajara, Mexico, Norma came to Leuven in 2008 to reunite with her husband. Leuven is full of good vibes and great schools. These are some of the reasons why she pursued a PhD in Educational Sciences here. Once she graduated, Norma joined UCLL as a lecturer and as a coach. After more than 10 years in Leuven, she thinks of herself as a ‘MexiLeuvenaar’.
