Welcome! I'm Rocio (roh-SEE-oh)


I'm a Latinx writer who chronicles the US Latinx Experience. I'm the product of resilient and hard-working immigrant parents that took me to the US (Chicago)—to provide a better life—at the age of 11. My Mexican-American identity fills me with pride because I represent a growing generation of hyphenated Americans. My work often explores elements including customs, social standards, beliefs, traditions and social issues affecting my community.

I'm currently traveling through SE Asia after living and working in South Korea for two years. As I go along, I document my observations, perceptions and interpretations of the local culture.

Not all my writing focuses on academic(ish) cultural ethnography pieces, though. I also cover lighter topics such as travel, lifestyle and peer interviews. To balance things out, you know?
