Gracias to UTSA’s Women’s Studies Institute, for Awarding me Women’s Advocate of the Year. The first time I produced Empanada, with an all woman cast, crew and team, was on the UTSA stage during Women’s History Month. They have always done “work that matters,” and I commit to continuing to doing the same through my writing, art and activism. Thank you again, UTSA. It is an honor to be recognized by such a fine program of amazing people.
