Candelaria was working as a Women’s Projects Advisor through the National Commission for the Development of Indigenous Peoples (CDI)’s POPMI program when she became a Fellow. She speaks Spanish and Maya and is well known for the support she offers people. This young indigenous leader fights to defend the rights of indigenous women and for those most in need. Her short-term goal is to work with 8 groups of 10 members each, in different communities, strengthening their organizational development to become successful leaders through productive projects by creating workshops and training sessions in different topics. In the long term she wants to create a center for women and young people in the Tulum and Lazaro Cárdenas municipalities. Candy was 21 years old when she was selected as a GOJoven Fellow.
