One sentence to describe yourself: I come from Mexican and Puerto Rican immigrants.

What will you be presenting on? I’ll be presenting on “Fast Food liberation” and how the women raising me viewed it as the American Dream. 

Best piece of advice you ever got about cooking: It’s not the end of the world if it doesn’t turn out “just right”.

If you could only eat one meal forever, it would be: Tacos forever.

Favorite food: Vegan pozole!

Food you’d like to try: I would like to try making more Puerto Rican comfort foods.
