Ana Luisa Muñoz Ortiz
I am a social communicator, writer, and artist. I was born in Cartagena de Indias, Colombia and raised in the torpor of an eternal summer in a peripheral black neighborhood known for its love of salsa, stories, and popular traditions. All elements that, among other things, have led me to develop a special interest in black culture, feminism, literature, poetry, and for everything human, which is by definition universal. While I try to explain who I am, I'm reminded that the search for identity is always an unfinished process, one that never ends up being known. That unfinished process is where my true freedom lies: in being able to define myself as I choose, under my own terms and under my own aesthetics. I am substantially from the Caribbean, its music and its prose.
