Moved by social labor, something I love since I was a little girl, I founded with two friends an association named Anima-Ars (www.anima-ars.org). We are a group of young people from different working and social areas who work with different artistic sources to encourage people in vulnerable situations, discrimination or disadvantage, to provide them a way to express their problematics and be able to rebuild their path and be reinserted in the social life promoting human development. We have done workshops with rescued girls from human trafficking and sexual slavery, kids with congenital heart disease, and abandoned old people.
I was born and raised in Mexico City, a huge, polluted, and very crowded city. I studied literature and did my social service in the with the head of the Botanical Garden, a biologist specialized in cacti, that taught me his love for nature. Attracted by the idea of mixing art and nature, I developed a special interest in science diffusion that drove me to discover a talent in storytelling, to transmit knowledge in a comprehensive way.
Concurrently, in order to escape a little bit of the stressful life of the city, I found in climbing mountains and diving deep in the sea a way to connect with my inner self. Those two worlds are my passion now a day. All of this drove me to get closer to photography, a way to discover the world and discover myself, by creating a visual diary. I found a way to express my place in this chaotic world and to show what my heart sees.
