I want to say I am so honor and touched that Deaf Women of Color DWC chose me to be part of this month Overlooked Gem, Gracias! Muchismas gracias!
I am Chicana Deaf Artivist who was born and raised in Los Angeles California, single mother of a teenage son. I began my career in daycare development, and then shifted to a fabulous small business, @ily_LA12 (name sign 🤟🏼A), that focuses on art designs from everyday objects such clothes, pins, stickers, and masks. This allow me to use art to bring justice for those who experience social oppressions, and to express my worldview on different level. A former Alma de Muxeristas circle member, and now I am the co-chair for DEAFestival LA, this event bring the community together to provide many important resources, expose different talented entertainers, artists and small businesses.
Also give those who want to volunteers to be able have those work experiences to add in their resume. I love horror, like really such in film, art, activities and writing; in fact, Halloween is just another ordinary day for me. I also use SFX makeup as one of my other form of artivism. Again I want to say thank you so much for choosing me to be this month Overlooked Gem, I am really honored muchismas gracias (besos ) Happy International Women’s Month (🏼boom)
