Aleja, a published poet, a PR and Marketing professional, and a fashion entrepreneur, is a first-gen Latina, a queer woman, a content creator, a spiritual- gangster, a lover of music and dance, a praiser of Mother Earth, and the eldest daughter of Mexican-migrant parents who have always embedded a strong sense of respect and passion for culture in her. From her poetry to her fashion label, leveraging her communities, which are intersectionally marginalized, is her ultimate motivator. It has served as the catalyst in her life and inspired her to found Morena Mia, a BIPOC fashion retailer, Urban Vqra, an ecletic clothing label inspired by BIPOC subcultures, co-found Ella Puede, a PR and Marketing Firm and Network for BIPOC women, and author Mujer De Color(es), a poetry and portrait collection highlighting her experience as a brown queer woman. Beyond her creativity, she is a leader and spokesperson for her community, often using her online platforms to raise awareness around LGBTQ+ rights, women's reproductive rights, immigration legislation, and racism. Aleja is unapologetically bold.
