I'm from Colombia and earned my BA in sociology from the Universidad Nacional de Colombia in Bogotá. I lived in Argentina for a couple of years and hold a MA in Contemporary Latin American Aesthetics from the Universidad Nacional de Avellaneda. In Colombia, I worked as a human rights defender and social researcher, allowing me to build concerns about how violence is socially and sensitively constructed and linked with multiple colonial legacies.
