“A Very Brief Introduction to “I"'. Who is I?... I am a daughter. I am a friend. I am a lover. I am woman. I am a fighter. I am an artist. I am human... Am I nothing more than a compilation of cells infused with a consciousness that allows me to know right from wrong, reality from illusion? I'd like to think of myself as a consciousness housed in a temporary physical form. Whatever the case may be, I am me, and that is all that I can offer. Philosophy Major, minor in Studio Arts and an interest in Latin America and the Caribbean. Teacher, activist, yet I remain a lifelong learner. Devoted to the mission of Multicultural Affairs. This blog is intended to track my progress in an upper level photography course taken while enrolled as a student at Rollins College. I invite you to join me as I explore this medium and its power to raise awareness and promote social, political and personal change.

I believe in... Una Raza sin Fronteras



Staying ‘home’ and not venturing out from our own group comes from woundedness, and stagnates our growth. To bridge means loosening our borders, not closing off to others….To bridge is to attempt community, and for that we must risk being open to personal, political, and spiritual intimacy, to risk being wounded."

Quedarse en la casa'' y no aventurarse fuera de nuestro propio grupo viene donde estamos heridos y proviene nuestro crecimiento. Para hacer puentes signifa que abriemos mas de nuestras fronteras y que no cierremos a otros… Para hacer puentes es intentar comunidad, y para eso tenemos que corre el riesgo de ser abierto a personal, polĂ­tico y espiritual intimidad, a correr el riesgo de ser heridos."
