I grew up in a very proud Mexican family in southern California. At seventeen, I began my university career at the University of California, Santa Barbara studying psychology. I switched to politics as I became more curious about the world and the policies that dictated its societies. In my third year I moved to Scotland, studying at the University of Edinburgh, where I pursued courses focusing on international organizations and communities. I returned to California for my last year of university, and graduated with my BA in June 2010. After I graduated, I decided I did not want to enter the political sphere as most graduates do (e.g., internships with government, moving on to law, etc.). Instead I became interested in the people who are affected by policy. I want to give their lives a place in policy-making with powerful stories, and further move policymakers with powerful photographs. In essence, I aspire to become an influential photojournalist one day. At the moment, I am acquiring the skills to achieve my goals. So far it has been a slow process of self-teaching, but I am determined. I currently live in New Zealand, where kiwis have shown me to learn from the earth and live life to the fullest, with a laugh in the heart and a good beer in-hand.
