I'm a fashion designer, a radio host, community organizer and activist originally from Honduras, now based in Lexington, Kentucky. I'm passionate about community involvement and I have served on a number of boards for local and state organizations. Because of my experience working in sweatshops as a teenager in my native country, I have become an advocate for fair trade, women’s rights and sustainable development. I'm known for using unconventional recycled materials for my work, including paper, plastic bags and even tree bark. During my time in Lexington, I have been awarded for my fashion design work and activist work. I have also been able to collaborate with incredible artist and our work has been featured in national and international fashion and art publications, as well as in theater, film and gallery productions.

I often volunteer for several art and community organizations as speaker, sewing and design instructor and event organizer. Due to the large volume of requests, I'm forced to limit the amount of events I volunteer to commit to per month.

 

I'm available for presentations and lectures on topics related to:

-the fashion industry

-women's rights

-Latinx arts and culture 

-sustainable development

-Latinx immigrants in America

-sewing
