Briceida is a queer Xicana born and raised in Las Vegas, Nevada. As a McNair Scholar, her undergraduate research involved working with undocuqueer students to closely examine resources available to them and honor their experiences as activists in the Nevada higher education system. Currently she is interested in the intersections between citizenship, borders, immigration, gender/sexuality, and violence. With a grounding in women of color feminist scholarship, she wants to contribute to the survival and prosperity of her communities by evaluating how violence is perpetrated onto queer immigrants. As a co-creator of The Muxerista Collective, a Xicanx feminist media platform, Briceida hopes to build bridges and make academia accessible to create spaces for activism, feminism, social justice, and self-care.
