what they want you to know about them:
medina (they/them), curious by nature, community oriented, compassionate, and super productive when hyperfocused, enjoys all things music and nature. their heart grows at the thought of rachel carson, berta cáceres, mary oliver, thích nhất hạnh, caetano veloso, carson mccullers, or a musical artist they recently discovered.
they find inspiration in the singing breeze, children’s laughter, learning from elders, the first sip of tea, fingers dancing and gliding on notes of a piano, pink skies and twinkling eyes of people talking about what makes their heart grow.
the singing of birds make them feel glad they are alive. star gazing, moonlight and the soundscape of the world right before dawn makes them feel home.
they are doing their best and they’re learning all the time.
