Karla Munguía Colmenero

A story you should know

Karla Munguía Colmenero was 10 years old when she saw the image that would change her view of life: a family living in outer space. This family was part of an attraction on a theme park. The members were holding hands, floating in a spaceship. Behind them, through a small round window, Karla noticed an image of Planet Earth.

“Why are we going to live in outer space? What are we going to do to the Planet that we’ll have to leave?”, those were the questions that haunted her.

In that moment, at that early age, Karla knew that she was going to dedicate her life to the Planet. And the Planet heard her.

Docu-reality show on Animal Planet

Beating 34,000 other entries, Karla was one of 6 Finalists in Animal Planet ‘Unearthed’, a docu-reality TV series in 2006 to find the next generation of up and coming wildlife filmmakers.

Camera Operator in Animal Planet

Since then she spent three years working in South Africa as Camera Operator, Off Line Editor, Writer and Director for Animal Planet series “Shamwari: A Wild Life” and “Wild and Woolly”.

Animal rescue

While her three years in South Africa, Karla was foster mom to a baby african elephant that was rescued after losing his mother. The purpose for rescuing this baby elephant was to rehabilitate him for a couple of years until he was ready to go back to his family

Mexican Ambassador

In 2014 she was given the title of Mexican Ambassador. She’s now taking her career further by helping and educating children and young people in Playa del Carmen through the charity Keeping Kids in School.

List of the topics Karla talks about during her conferences

What do Karla has to say?
01

Bullying

As a victim of bullying herself from 5th grade to 9th, Karla shares how an elephant and a sheep lived in harmony. During this conference Karla shares a video for this storytelling with images that she filmed herself and where children can see how the three of them were best friends even when they were three different species.
02

Motivation

To Karla is very important to motivate and inspire children, teenagers and young adults to fight for their dreams. The challenges she had to face to become a camerawoman for Animal Planet is an example that she shares with the students in both public and private schools.
03

Environment

Every single decision that Karla has taken throughout her life has been inspired by what she thinks the Planet needs from her.
From the university career she chose, to the products she uses on her every day life. During her conferences, she shares useful information with the students in order to reduce our impact and apply daily habits that can improve our life and the rest of the Planet’s life.

Testimonials

Thanks for so much knowledge and experiences

You spread to all of us your energy, commitment, freedom to choose, humbleness and empathy to life! Special beings are the ones that one truly feels in life. Those are the ones who inspire us to keep moving. To me, you’re a role model. Keep living the dream, I will always follow you so I can be filled with optimism and hope

Luz Arredondo,
Eco-Club, John F. Kennedy School.

Kids returned happy and filled with knowledge and consciousness. You’ve planted a seed that is up to us, parents, to keep cultivating. Thank you so much”.  

Sharon Morlett,
Mother of a student in Colegio Washington.

To listen to kids in 9th grade saying that they want to pursue their biggest dreams, like be an NFL player, conquer the World (not like Pinky and The Brain). This is the first conference where I don’t fall asleep, I really liked you, Karla. ‘Miss, how long is Karla going to be here?’. Many wanted to be closer to you. I’m glad that kids know and feel that there’s people out there who reach their dreams, and they can listen to you, see you and touch you. Thank you”.

Irma Ruiz Monforte,
Maestra Nueva Generación.
