I was born in San Diego, but raised in Tijuana, and educated in the bay (Go Bears!). I recently moved to Philly to work in the immigration defense at the Mexican Consulate. I am highly interested in issues regarding POC empowerment, gender, mental health, and politics. Regarding climbing, I was introduced to bouldering around the same time I was diagnosed with clinical depression, and today I truly believe in the spiritual and healing power that this sport and its community have got to offer.
