"I do the work that I do because I feel that it is some of the most necessary work. Growing up and seeing so many instances in which the different communities I am from/identities that compose me need healing instilled in me a promise/passion to help make this healing happen. I want fellow LGBTQ Latinx folx to shine in a way we haven’t been encouraged to before, and I want to ease the pain that comes with coming from a marginalized community. The overall goal is to mend the wound and heal. I think this work is the perfect way to initiate that process."
