About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Arriving in DF on May 10 !

ABOUT ME

Soy tranquila y relajada, me gustan las aventuras, cocinar, leer, hacer arte y yoga bikram. Me gustaría conocer la cuidad y a la gente este verano en DF!

I am from Oakland, California but go to a small Quaker liberal arts college in the Midwest. I am studying environmental studies at Earlham College in Richmond, Indiana where I live at student-run homestead/small scale farm.

Last semester I did a semester long program based in Southern Arizona studying the U.S.-Mexico border as related to the political economy of food, migration and sustainability.

PHILOSOPHY

otro mundo es posible !

I seek to create beauty-to subvert the dominant paradigm--and to work against systems of oppression from a place of love
