Mya De La Rosa
Mya De La Rosa /2005/ was born in Los Angeles and has lived in Honduras, Virginia, El Salvador and SoCalifornia. Her work reflects on multiculturalism, gender, queerness and the effects of colonialism. An ongoing project of De La Rosa’s is “An Investigation of Sivar”, which delves into Salvadoran history through blog posts and interviews with Salvadoran diaspora and foreign policy experts, to contextualize the development of an authoritarian government there today. Her time abroad has enabled her to appreciate the importance of global democracy and national self-determination. She is a thespian, computer programmer, polyglot and traveler.
Within the humanities, I am interested in studying cultures, language, and theater. These all can tie together, and I have pursued this passion by developing theatrical works in verse, which are a poetic study of language and of people, with a focus on the intersections of queer culture and Latinx families.
What identities do you perform in your day-to-day life and how have they changed over time? How can you care for others as they perform their identities with honesty?
