“I am my own muse, I am the subject I know best. The subject I want to know better.”
Popular by default, Frida Kahlo deeply resonated with me at a young age as a Latinx artist piecing together my passion and purpose. Her sense of empowerment and self ownership was decades beyond her time. In the past, I was always the girl who had large birthday celebrations – this year was different. As I’ve age, I’ve become more reserved and observant. Things that used to mean the world to me don’t even come across my mind anymore. That being said, my biggie and I decided to venture off to Mexico City for my birthday. We stayed with my mom’s childhood best friend and were toured around by our dear friend Maria (an LA native turned Mexico City local). Till this day (almost 2019) we all constantly send each other memories to brighten our days from this epic trip. This city is filled with so much culture, delectable cuisine, musica, ART, and so much to explore. You can definitely cram a lot of it in over a three day weekend but I suggest venturing out to the pyramids which are an hour away from the city. We will be back Mexico City!
