Aleja is a poet, designer, and content creator.

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 POC curated fashion retailer, URBAN ​VQRA, an eclectic clothing label inspired by Chicano Ranchero subcultures, ​co-found Ella Puede, a BIPOC content creator hub, and author of Mujer De ​Color(es), a poetry and portrait collection published by Alegria Publishing ​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.
