I was selected to become a Dorothea Lange Fellow based on my Quinceañera project.  

I've always been fascinated by how cultures intersect. Quinceañeras became an opportunity to look at how Latinas negotiate between being a girl in one culture and a woman in another.

As a journalist working in new media, I'm increasingly aware of the power of the image. I like to communicate visually and it's largely becoming the way I report and tell stories.
