About the Mentor
Cell: (714) 273-7161
Mayra grew up in the city of Anaheim, California. She is the daughter of immigrant parents from Guatemala and first generation in this country. Like many children of immigrant parents, she grew up with a steady stream of obstacles and challenges in her path. These and many other experiences forced her to acknowledge and work through the social, cultural, and language skills gaps that she encountered in the workforce and in her personal life. In doing that, she developed an intrinsic motivation towards helping others to overcome similar skills gaps and challenges.
Currently, she is a Doctoral Candidate due to graduate in December of 2019. She has a training and consulting practice in Orange County, Mayra Austin Business Solutions specialized in Management optimization strategies and is mentoring for the Mihaylo School of Business and Economics at the Cal State Fullerton University.
