Meet the individuals, who recognize as part of the LatinX culture on Cedar Crest College Campus.
I was born and raised in Bronx, New York and although I am not fluent in Spanish, I recognize as a LatinX woman of color. My grandparents came from Puerto Rico to New York and my grandmother from my mother's side is Brazilian. My mother has been a driving force in what I do and who I am, because she set the standard of how embracing our heritage can make us stronger and remind of where our ancestors came from. I find inspiration from artists like Gabriel Picolo, Frida Kahlo and even music because they all tell a story in their own way.
I was born and raised in Bogota Colombia, Spanish is my first language, I self identify as a Latinx woman of color who is an immigrant a mother and educator among others. My family, heritage and history are core to the work I do and how I do it. I find inspiration on strong women like social activist like Dolores Huerta, authors like Isabel Allende and artist like Frida Kahlo and Doris Salcedo.
