I am originally from Mexico City, Mexico, but have spent a large portion of my life growing up in Los Angeles, California. I have lived experiences in Mexico and the United States that have motivated me to explore Mexican and Chicanx culture in my studies and at UNM, I hope to look at their influences on a global scale.

By early June of 2022, I will have gotten my BFA in graphic design from the Savannah College of Art and Design. I hope to incorporate some of my design abilities into my new field of study while putting time into my research. I want to help in breaking borders and communicating important messages, and I believe I will get closer to that goal through UNM and the Chicana/o graduate studies program that very much embraces this breaking of borders.

Go Lobos!
