My name is Nancy Carolina Mejia. I was born on September 23, 1990 to Rubenia Hernandez (10/30/60-09/12/02) and Jose Mejia (MIA) in Los Angeles, California.
My parents were born in Central America and I am said to be a “seed” from Honduras 🇭🇳 since my mom traveled to the United States with me in her belly. I think that’s one of the reasons I have a different mentality than my sisters.
Imagine traveling by foot, bus and car across four countries carrying whatever you were going to bring with you to start your new life, your most valued possessions… and you’re 6 months pregnant… oh, and you’re trying to not get killed, raped or caught by the police along the way. It’s crazy. But that’s how my life started.
My mom moved us from Los Angeles to Cordes Lakes, AZ when I was 5 years old. I stayed in Arizona until I was 20 years old and then moved to Dallas. In the span of those years a lot of events happened… some life changing and some traumatic but ultimately every event shaped the way I think today.
I now live in Denver, Colorado with my boyfriend Mario and my puppy Nala. We love it here!
