Hola – I’m Meda!
I write about my experience as:
- A Latina in tech
- Child of immigrants
- Reader of primarily BIPOC books
- Occasionally often about grief
Light stuff, I know! I’ve been writing for myself since I can remember, but on the advice of friends who get paragraph-long texts with my latest musings, I’ve been told I’m an essayist and need to share my writing 💛📚
