Nurturing Yourself through Anti-Racist Artistic Practice with Chinchin Hsu & Mitzi Ulloa
As educators and school staff who continue to hold space for our students through the pandemic, carving space for creativity is a way for us to nurture oneself.

I was born in a seaport town located in the Los Angeles harbor (Tongva Land), raised in Turlock (Yokuts Valley) and migrated to San Francisco (Ramaytush Ohlone ) as a young adult. I am the oldest of eight siblings and a proud daughter of Immigrants. I am the first in my family to attend college and graduate with a Master’s Degree in Education. Presently, I am a Visual and Performing Arts Teacher with SFUSD and I am part of the PULSE (Peers United for Leadership Service & Equity) Pathway at Balboa High School. I currently dance with the Arenas Dance Company and continue to study various art mediums from amazing artists in the Bay Area, Caribbean and Latin America. I LOVE to CREATE, PLAY and BUILD CommUNITY through Dance and Art.
