Listen to the Interview

Sarah is a writer, teacher, and community activist.

Here is the first paragraph of her essay “Mi Vida”

“Both sets of my grandparents relocated their family to Brownsville, Texas from Matamoros, Tamaulipas, Mexico in the late 1960’s. My parents received high-school level educations and moved to Southern California in the late 1970’s. The majority of my childhood took place in Santa Ana, California while spending summers in Texas with my grandparents. My father died at the age of 36, leaving behind three daughters between the ages of ten and thirteen and a wife with limited work experience. Immediately after his death my mother moved us to Rancho Santa Margarita, California.”
