I am a first-generation student and this piece pays homage to my heritage and identity, lo mexicana y indígena. By combining the words of Gloria Anzaldúa and the image of Yalitza Aparicio, I welcome my indigenous identity and my Spanish voice, using feminist discourse. It is my hope to communicate my identity, empowered between and by two beautiful, intersectional cultures.
