About Me: 

A 28 year-old Chicagoan trying to overcome all sorts of challenges. Current challenge is getting adjusted to biking in a city where streets and avenues are traffic-packed all the time! A challenge that leaves me less frenzied is learning how to cook raw, vegan and vegetarian dishes. (This seems to be going well). I also have a 9 to 5 job that allows me to pay off my college loans, yet leaves me craving so much more at the end of the work day. As a result, I volunteer all my free time to organizations focused on ending violence against girls and women, violence within communities, and empowering women and youth. I've entered my 11th year as a rhetoric instructor for inner-city public schools. It's amazing how much I grow and learn from these experiences combined.

My Passions: 
Mangos & Chocolate. Books & Reading. Dance. Photography. Dialogue.
My Challenges: 
Striking a balance between pursuing my dreams and meeting my needs
My Vision for the Future: 
In the words of Arundahti Roy: "Another world is not only possible, she is on her way. On a quiet day, I can hear her breathing."
My Areas of Expertise: 
Women's Human Rights Campaigns, Collaborative Empowerment with Women & Youth, Domestic Violence & Rape Crisis Trained Counselor & Legal Advocate, Philosophy, Women & Gender Studies
My Languages: 
English, Spanish, French
