"I hope you grow up to be
Even kinder than me
I hope you get to see all of the world
From mountain to seas
I hope you reach all your dreams
I hope that that's what you need"

Christina Romero (MIJA), is a Chicana artist based out of Austin, Tejas. Her artwork features individuals and messages that have helped to shape her identity and sense of belonging.
"Mija is a reminder of human connection, whether by blood or by choice. When the cashier at the Fruteria calls me Mija, I am safe. When my father calls me Mija, I am proud. When my mother calls me Mija, I am home."
