Because of the intersections that exist in my own life: woman, multi-racial woman; woman of color, queer, bisexual, Mexican-Irish American; immigrant, and raised by families heavily rooted in Catholicism on both my Mexican and Irish sides, I am deeply invested in projects that allow our youth?s voices to be heard.?
