I was born in Bogotá, Colombia, where I lived for 13 years before moving to the U.S., to the barren tropical lands of South Florida. I lived in Beijing, China, for 11 months, where I also interned at China’s biggest English-language magazine, The Beijinger.
In May 2011, I graduated from the University of Florida with a journalism major and Chinese and film minors. At UF, I was co-Editor-in-Chief of The Anole, UF‘s multilingual magazine, and I have worked with PBS, the Gainesville Sun and the Independent Florida Alligator, among others.
I currently live in Brooklyn, NY, where I intern at Slate Magazine’s art department, and I occasionally write for Slate’s DoubleX blog. I am also co-founder and writer at the feminist blog Femination and at Consumo y Zoociedad.
