My story is one of overcoming a childhood of domestic violence, religious trauma and toxic relationships while navigating the intersections of being first generation U.S. born queer Salvadorian-Guatemalan in a conservative Central American family. Growing up in Los Angeles, I witnessed how misinformation plagued my community, family and loved ones and reinforced harmful narratives around gender, sex and sexuality. All leading me to the road of self acceptance, love and a fulfilling career as a sex educator and speaker. For the past decade, I have spread the word of comprehensive sex education by empowering thousands in making informed sexual health decisions that align with their values.
I'm always looking for new and exciting opportunities. Let's connect.
