Congratulations to our First Generation Spotlight award recipient, Alanis Hernandez!
Of her work she says “My work mostly centers around my identity and cultural heritage, specifically about what it means to be a first generation Latina living in the United States. Because of this my family has become one of my biggest inspirations. So far my work has no definitive medium as I continue to learn and explore. However, I want my work to not only depict my lived experiences but something that other first gen Latinos can relate to. I hope to grow more here at CSU as I continue to incorporate themes of identity and family into my work.”
