I studied Sociology at the Universidad de San Simón in Cochabamba. Since 2000 I have been an activist in Bolivian youth organizations in support of social movements, particularly in relation to water, gas, the coca leaf and natural resources. Since 2005 I have been more involved in autonomous feminist groups and spaces, and recently more from a class and decolonizing perspective. I worked at the Democracy Center from 2007 to 2020, when we founded TerraJusta, where I hold the position of Director. My work also focuses on relationships and direct communication with social organizations and allies of affected communities, mainly in the southern region of Peru.
