¡Hola y bienvenida! My name is Esperanza, which is Spanish for hope. I am named after two fierce ladies: my grandma and my mama. A few months ago, I had the privilege of welcoming my own fierce lady into the world. We named her Ximena Esperanza (yes, the fourth!).
I am a Mexican-American feminist, activist, and writer. My work can be found on Nationally renown sites like Fusion and Adios Barbie. Throughout my career, I have had the privilege of sharing the stories and protecting the rights of women, youth, people of color, and other marginalized communities. I started Hello Esperanza to more intimately explore the complexities of feminism, motherhood, and the beauty of my culture.
I spend my free time outdoors with my warrior baby, laughing with my husband, making yummy Mexican food & desserts, and wearing all the fabulous red lipstick. I look forward to sharing the magic that surrounds my life, and also hear about yours. Thanks for following along!
