Cindy’s article How ‘Intellectual Humility’ Can Make You a Better Person, originally published on New York Magazine, was quoted as “perhaps no better piece to share widely,” by Stef Feldman, former vice president Joe Biden policy advisor,  and was named a favorite read by Adam Grant, New York Times bestselling author of Give and Take and Originals.

She has received two Pushcart Prize nominations, and her poem “Mother Carcass,” is forthcoming in the anthology WAVES: A Confluence of Women’s Voices (A Room of Her Own Foundation).

Born in Honduras but raised in the US, Cindy comes from a mixed background of Latin American and European heritage. She’s lived in four different countries and grew up between worlds, which infused her with a fascination for traveling and learning about other cultures. In 2010, she majored in Journalism and Communications from La Universidad Católica de El Salvador. Since graduating, Cindy has pursued her passion for Social Justice by working with diverse nonprofits as a Communications Specialist. She also has experience developing marketing and social media campaigns for authors and business clients to improve their overall online strategy.
