“Self Portrait con Valencia” on Women’s Voices for Change

31 Jul

A wonderful thing happened to me this week! Outstanding poet and writer, Amanda Moore, spent some time with my poem, “Self Portrait con Valencia” and wrote an essay about it for Women’s Voices for Change.

I’m honored and grateful and excited to share her words and insight into this poem, which is a time-travel back to when I was 14 and learning the nomenclature of chemistry. I am so grateful to Women’s Voices for Change for publishing it, I feel so seen.

With gratitude to Rosebud Ben-Oni for the impetus to write this, and to Dr. Oswaldo Holguín, renown chemistry teacher at Colegio Americano de Guayaquil. Look at what you taught me, Doctor.


Please let me know what you think of this poem. I love comments!
