Hello! I was born and raised in Los Angeles, California. I am the daughter of Latin American immigrants. My father immigrated to the U.S. from Colombia, and my mother from México.
I am a 3rd-year History Ph.D. student minoring in Latino Studies. As an undergraduate, I double-majored in Chicana/o Studies and Psychology. My research focuses on the racial and generational legacies of U.S. agricultural guestworker programs. As a grandchild of a former Bracero (Mexican guestworker), I am passionate about uplifting the legacies of such programs, including Caribbean, Asian, and other Latinx guestworker groups.
