She currently studies graphic design and collaborates on visual communication projects, animation and, above all, children's books and stories that to some extent intertwine with her own, as well as those of various black people. They are layers of colors, feelings and strong textures that vibrate in her body and are expanded through the joy of being able to express herself, always with great affection, through illustrations.
