First-generation person & writer in Los Angeles

I'm currently an MFA Writing Candidate at CalArts.

Before that, I went to USC, where I majored in Narrative Studies and presented a thesis collection of personal essays about my first-generation upbringing.

I'm also an Alumna of Under The Volcano, a series of Writing Master Classes in Tepoztlan, Mexico, where I worked under the direct guidance of Jonathan Levi (Co-Founder of Granta Magazine) and acclaimed author & MacArthur Fellowship winner Sandra Cisneros.

Above is a photo of me and my dog Coco.
