2022 Create Change Fellow
Crown Heights, Brooklyn | Community Development, Oral Storyteller, Event Producer, Writer and Cultural Educator
My time living and working in India, Spain, LATAM, and Brooklyn in fields ranging from education, digital marketing, and community building taught me that art. As an urbanist, I love creating safe spaces with a socio-anthropological mindset in order to embolden those stories we do not hear in mainstream media. I have been able to facilitate this work through my podcast around immigrants and emigrants from across the globe called @nocountryformoving, being a past original board member for nonprofit, BlackSpace as well as writing content that aligns itself with identity, her/history.
What role can art and culture play in shaping the future of your neighborhood or the city at large?
“Art and culture provide a pathway to facilitate and embolden community-based initiatives that inspire growth, which pushes for fundamental changes in our society as a whole.”
