“Because I believe in women's rights.”

About Me

I recently moved to Utah from Puerto Rico. I grew up in a family with six sisters, who broke lots of molds. I believe the United States has been going backwards in human rights in general, women's rights more than anything. But I also believe we should all fight together. All decisions affect women, because we are at the center of everything. So I not only fight for women's rights, but also for healthcare rights, housing rights, and many others.
