Hi everyone! I go by Minerva or Maca, and I’m a second-year environmental studies and comparative American studies double major with an intended minor in dance. Pre-pandemic, I was a part of Fairkid (a dining co-op) and Movimiento (a Latin dance group). If these mean anything to you: I'm an INFJ, my primary love language is physical touch, my ascendant is in Pisces, and I have synesthesia.

I’m currently on the board of Obies for Undocumented Inclusion (OUI), a student organization that advocates for the emotional and financial wellbeing of undocumented students at Oberlin and hosts events to educate allies/accomplices on undocumented issues. I also coordinate and facilitate for Dismantling Our Own Racism (DOOR), a collective that facilitates hard conversations between white people seeking to unlearn racism, relearn humility, and commit to the active support of BIPOC-led racial justice initiatives.

On campus, I live in Latinx Heritage House. At the moment, I spend a lot of time walking in the Arb (forest-y place), journaling, exchanging funny/spooky stories in my lounge, and drinking warm tea. I’m excited to bring you my perspective as an Oberlin student and hope you enjoy my blog!
