My self-summary
A Guatemalan-born Nicaraguan raised in South Florida and now in New York City.
What I’m doing with my life
I used to work with a bunch of attorneys who defend detained people in deportation proceedings. Still trying to figure out the worth in non-violence and non-profits.

Now I'm in law school.
I’m really good at
Getting people to spill their stories;
Riding bikes;
organizing the mess that is splitting a check amongst friends;
telling bizarre stories with a straight face;
Discussing intersectional oppression;
Making pancakes.
The first things people usually notice about me
How I don't look my age and the grey hairs sprouting up all over my head.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I read way more nonfiction than fiction. I'm trying to be better about this. Some favorites are: Harvest of Empire, One Day of Life, In the Time of the Butterflies, The Grapes of Wrath, Borderlands, Pa'lante, The Motorcycle Diaries, When I was Puerto Rican, Open veins of Latin America, Killing Rage, Revolutionary Suicide, Lord of the Rings, Woman at Point Zero, The Book of Laughter and Forgetting

The six things I could never do without
A book in my bag
Water bottle
My bike
Flor de caña
I spend a lot of time thinking about
the intricacies of oppression, macro and micro. Cats. Dogs. Where to find Nicaraguan food in NYC (do you know?). Societal collapse.
On a typical Friday night I am
hopefully imbibing, sharing stories, going to dance/karaoke, or engaging in high-brow intellectual conversations about state power with my cats.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I tend to name and give back stories to inanimate objects and animals. I've been told I have an insanely active imagination.
You should message me if
You want to ride bikes, eat tacos, discuss kyriarchy, do some urban or non urban hiking, take me to find Nicaraguan food, or if you've just got a kick ass story.

All "hey, what's up" messages and their variants, "hey, how are you doing?" will be promptly deleted. You all can be more creative than that.
