Panel 1

Call to Action

Communications & integration strategy for the mind, spirit, community, & website rooted in strategy and emotional intelligence in an increasingly automated world.

Self-healing. I guide people and organizations in the development of leadership rooted in creativity and communications. As a survivor of colonial and sexual violence, for many years I sat in the backseat of my own life feeling helpless, as if someone else was driving. Public access television, healing justice spaces, and my work and study at Harvard University helped me get to the front and center. I now use those tools to help others and grow my practice.

Healing justice. I am committed to creating a more creative and just world that honors our history, no matter how painful, and restore dignity to the most vulnerable. I create spaces for marginalized voices including my own while. A Healing Justice Practice Space (HJPS) is an all-gender, all- bodied, inclusive and accessible space for practicing and receiving healing that is built in partnership with social justice movement work and sites of political action.

Reaching the world. When we talk about globalization, we often focus on the select few who profit. Through my migration from New York City to Harvard University and Puerto Rico, I have always been inspired by many cultures and amazed at how people have taken risks to reach new spaces to grow. I am curious how we can use the media to engage with a variety of experiences while being supported by search engines and algorithms that enhance the diversity of content, not limit its scope.
