Early lifeEdit

Mayor is from Azcapotzalco, an industrial suburb of Mexico City. She played on boy's teams growing up and later on Mexican youth national teams.[6]

Playing careerEdit

CollegiateEdit

Mayor played for Universidad de las Américas Puebla.[5]

ÚrvalsdeildEdit

Mayor signed for Icelandic Úrvalsdeild kvenna team Þór/KA in February 2016.[7] On September 28, 2017, she won the Icelandic championship with Þór/KA after defeating FH, in the last game of the season, 2-0 with goals from Sandra Jessen and herself.[8] After the game, Mayor was named as the player of the season.[9]

On April 24, she helped Þór/KA win the 2018 League Cup. On April 29, she scored one goal in Þór/KA's 3-0 victory against ÍBV women's football in the Icelandic Super Cup.[10]

InternationalEdit

In international competitions she played in the Women's 2011 World Cup in Germany where she represented Mexico against England, Japan, and New Zealand.[11] In the Women's World Cup she scored in the game against New Zealand in the 2nd minute to open the scoring.[12] In October 2017, she had a total of 55 international cups and 10 goals.[5]

Personal lifeEdit

In June 2016, fellow Mexico women's national teammate Bianca Sierra announced publicly that she had a relationship with Mayor. Mayor and Sierra are believed to be the first openly gay athletes in Mexican history. Previously, in 2015, Mexican coach, Leonardo Cuellar, had warned Mayor and Sierra to avoid any "stunts" or "holding hands." In 2016, Mayor was not selected by Cuellar to play for the Mexican national team and Sierra declined to play on the national team. Mayor departed Mexico to play in Iceland. Sierra later joined her in Iceland.[6]

Mayor rejoined the Mexican national team, under new coach Roberto Medina, for a match against Venezuela on June 10, 2017.[13] Sierra rejoined the national team shortly thereafter.[14]
