My practice is driven by the innate curiosity to demystify the world around me. A reoccurring interest of mine is Science and Technology - for many, these topics have been in the past and continue to be systematically mystified. It is critical for those without access to resources and education, and for those who feel alienated or unwelcomed by its western language and culture, create an interdisciplinary hybrid-space within these topics, in which to self-sufficiently reside and disrupt. While simultaneously becoming enlightened to ancestral methodologies that were both appropriated and degraded by western Science during globalization. We all learn to perform the complex dance of holding on to cultural heritage and community identity, while also having to assimilate for economic survival.
A part of this practice is sharing and creating these ideas with others through my involvement in a variety of community centers and libraries promoting free expression, access to tools and technologies, and introducing these unique experiences that speak to a diversity of narratives and cultures. My goal is to support young people, especially other women and POC, in forging their own paths and creating their own cultural spaces within Science and Technology.
