Raised in the Hudson Valley, Susie grew up watching her parents navigate a new language in order to provide a better life for their family. She earned her MFA in Fine Art at Universidad del Claustro de Sor Juana, and eventually moved back to New York to raise her daughter . Susie worked in retail for 10 years before feeling the urgent call to found Latinx in 2017, her organization to strengthen the latin community through art and community . Susie hopes to combat the stigma behind being undocumented, while bridging the gap between the latin community and the places they live. In the last year Latinx Project has worked with Latino Cultural Study, Arts Mid-Hudson, La Guelaguetza, and New Wave Latin. Susie is now working on organizing the Creative Market for Women of Color.
