Karla is a gifted and talented art student from UIMQRoo, who uses her paintings as a tool to present Maya and Mexican culture.

She comes from Cozumel and has decided to study at UIMQRoo because  she is proud to be both Maya and Mexican.

She dreams of showcasing her art to a wider audience, believing it is one of the most powerful tools to express one’s culture, traditions and challenges.

“I would like the world to see my paintings, Mexico is so rich in culture and Maya culture is Mexico’s heritage and it should be given a space that it deserves. Art will help me introduce my culture and language to the world.”
