Te Digo Algo - Let Me Tell You Something

Each phrase is an affirmation of strength, empowerment, and devotion to self growth. I wrote these phrases at a moment where I felt lost and confused about where I was headed in my creative journey. I had built up anxiety of what it meant to be an Afro-Peruvian woman in 2018 and needed to replenish myself and those around me with positive affirmations.

What are you looking at?

This piece is about building courage with a little bit of attitude to stand up and confront those who perceive you as less.

Survive

I created this piece in memory of all the strong women that came before us.

Forever we will be

I created this piece on indigenous people day as a celebration that we have always been here and forever will be.

We are here

We are here and will always be here. Just because you choose not to see us doesn’t mean we are not present.

Keep going
