2019 Lois and Archie Archuleta Scholarship Award Recipient

Major: Fine Arts with Graphic Design Emphasis

My parents have motivated me to continue my educational journey. They have always supported me in everything I have accomplished in my life. Mis padres han sacrificado mucho por mi y hoy me toca sacrificar por ellos.

I am passionate about representing my community and promoting social justice through my artwork. Artivism has allowed me to capture moments of resistance and resilience that exist within our communities. At a personal level, art has also allowed me to explore what it means to be Latinx and how to support social justice struggles in marginalized communities.
