“I portray the struggles and healing Tejana/Chicana women face in the contemporary moment by basing it on my own experience. These conflicts vary from identity, culture, language, class, race, body, and beauty.”
“Represento las dificultades y sanamientos que enfrentan las mujeres Tejana / Chicana en el momento contemporáneo basándome en mi propia experiencia.
Estos conflictos varían sobre identidad, cultura, idioma, clase, raza, cuerpo y belleza.“
