Mission & Vision

A daughter of the South Texas borderlands, I bask in the blurred culturas, languages, and histories that make up this parched and lush landscape. 

I weave personal essays out of memory, oral history/interviews, formal research, poesia, dreams, myths, and Anzaldúan theory.

In addition, I compose MAS curriculum as a means of empowering the barrio youth of the borderlands. 

 I strive to “sift, sort, and symbolize,” as la maestra Anzaldúa describes, in order to “re-envision the map of the known world.” 

My work both consults the ancestors’ maps and seeks new paths amongst the established trails.
