I was born and raised in San Antonio.
My mother, Beva, is from Albuquerque, NM and is a grassroots organizer for gender justice at the Southwest Organizing Project.
My dad, Eduardo, is an arts administrator and lives in D.C.
My sister, Micaela, is a Chicana/o Studies professor at UC Santa Barbara.
I was very close to my paternal grandparents. They helped raise me and their names were Leno and Elisa Diaz. I often talk about them in my work.
I met Angelica Reyna through Big Brothers/Big Sisters in San Antonio. She is a junior at Hilbert College in NY. I love her like a sister.
I love dancing salsa and flamenco. I am not particularly strong at either.
