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.

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?

If you are looking to join forces and collaborate on something, or maybe you have ideas on topics I should cover, comments or general feedback, please write me at rocio@thisisrocio.com
