Ana Leticia De León outside with a backpack

I grew up in Veracruz, Mexico and I currently live and study in the United States. I am an avid writer and a serious coffee fanatic. What do I write about? Many things, but my interests fall heavily in thinking about borders, gender, economic and political refugees, digestion and Hip-Hop. While a student at Earlham my work concentrated on prisoners, hunger strikes, body politics and transnational women of color solidarity. On a level of praxis, I have worked with a reconciliation center, immigrant rights organizations and with a refugee resettlement agency in Indianapolis. A recent meaningful experience I had was to be invited to speak at an interfaith Meeting for Worship where I got the opportunity to reflect on the legacy of the women of my family. I spoke about them as important role models and the way in which their politics influence my work and future aspirations. To me, it was the perfect way to close my undergrad education at Earlham College, to have a chance to bow in gratitude to the women that built the path I walk today.
