- Chapel Hill, NC,
- May 20
- Sometimes from El Salvador sometimes from Mexico, I'm a Latin American Studies graduate student at the University of Chicago; and a former Communications Coordinator at the Florida Immigrant Coalition and HIV/AIDS journalist.
I'm determined to give journalism another go to fund my creative writing. Because masochism is the best medicine and industry woes are forwarded to my junkmail.
My interests wrest in superstructural jenga, Latin American brick throwing, Miami's metro mover, and post-grad school psychosis powered by the interwebs, evidently.
Please call us, because we can't (are too broke) to call you.
