As far as I can remember, the arts have always been an important part of my life. It was most present during my high school years when I got involved in my school’s choir group and where I took classes that grew my interest in the work of literature. I’ve read many works of various Central American poets after taking a few CAS courses and was inspired by their work in displaying the beauty of the culture and the cultural issues they include to spread awareness. My work consists of feelings ,emotions, and thoughts that I experience throughout my life and within my culture in which I hope is relatable to those who read or see it. Although poetry and painting started as a hobby, experiences in my life and the knowledge I continue to grasp inspired me to create an outlet for myself to share not only my own experiences, but also bring awareness to issues that are important.
