Where are you from?

I am an earthy mixed Latina born and raised in Toronto. My father was Chilean and my mom is from Napoli.

What do you do?

I am currently a program creator and facilitator at a City of Toronto Youth Space. We are a non-traditional space where youth can attend programs that range from employment etiquette to producing beats.

What is your dream creative project?

Lately I have become obsessed with the sun, light and shadows so my dream creative project would definitely be a collection of photos I took of the sun and the way light is reflected on and off certain objects throughout the course of a day. I would love to have a series of both photos and film. I guess what’s stopping me is my lack of knowledge of film but that’s stupid because I still feel inspired by the imperfect quality of the photos I take on my undying iPhone 6s.

If your life were a movie, what would be on its soundtrack?

I am definitely a person who struggles with favorites. I have way too many favorites for my favorites to even BE favorites anymore. If I had to pick the top five I’ve been most recently listening to, they would be “Blessings on Blessings” OSHUN & Proda, “Que Te Pedi” La Lupe, “Da Art of Storytellin’, Pt. 1” Outkast, “Bombo Fabrika Remix” Little Simz & Gabriel Garzon-Montano, and “How Come You Don’t Call Me” Alicia Keys (her vocals, amazing). If my life were a movie, I would definitely expect my soundtrack to be a collection of sultry songs sung by La Lupe.
