What is a place that shaped you, and how does it give you purpose?

I am endlessly inspired by the vibrancy of Chicago. A first-generation Latinx queer individual, I am motivated by the strength of immigrant and queer communities to share my most authentic self, support creatives and speak up whenever possible for those who may not be able to do so.
