I speak about writing, identity, and the power of telling our stories to audiences of all ages. My story of growing up and denying my Latina identity inspires others to reflect on their own experiences and to share their own stories. I invite everyone to examine how people, places, and experiences have shaped them and how our biggest vulnerabilities allow us to make our biggest impact. I encourage people to believe in their limitless potential and to brave the blank page. My goal is for everyone to know that they have a story to tell and to believe that telling that story will make the world a better place. With intention and joy, I tailor each talk to match the event and audience. Whether I'm talking to a class of students, a group of teachers, or speaking at a conference, my honesty, openness, and positivity shines through.
