  • My name is Anna Martinez. I am New Mexico born and raised, however, my family is from Chihuahua Mexico. I am a recent graduate of St. Edwards University where I majored in Global Studies and Writing and Rhetoric. I enjoy writing about powerful Latina role models and I enjoy expanding on my learning through Latinitas. I think that by having powerful Latina role models we can change many of the narratives within our community, unite as women, and find power within ourselves. My hope is that my writing inspires young Latinas and incites change within our Latino communities.

  • Ella Ip joined the Latinitas team in June of 2022. She is a rising sophomore at Colby College, majoring in Economics and minoring in Environmental Studies. Her interest in writing bloomed in high school after taking a creative writing course, where she had the opportunity to write personal prose and poetry. She also works as an conservation intern at Texan by Nature, enjoys swimming in Barton Springs, and caring for her guinea pigs. As a writer, she hopes to tell her own stories as well as telling the stories of distinguished Latinx people.
