“Carolina Margarita writes with such love and precision about the questions and terrors of life today in South America. In these pages, you will find clowns and kidnappers and men, both young and old. This is nothing short of a tender probing into how people navigate the choices offered to them.” Daisy Hernandez, author of A Cup of Water Under My Bed
Literary Nonfiction. Latinx Studies.
Carolina lives in Pasadena, California, USA, and wants to visit La Granja more often to be surrounded by her dad's mangoes and avocado trees. She currently works as the Global Communications Lead for a global environmental coalition, and her proudest achievements include co- creating a foundation in Venezuela that inspired a movie that premiered at the Miami Film Festival; receiving the Effective Advocate award by Amnesty International; building Spanish-language capacity for the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), volunteering as a humanitarian clown in high-risk areas, and being one of the PEN America Emerging Voices finalists. Her writing career is just starting but she already has a couple of ideas in mind for future endeavors.
