La recordaré como una de las protagonistas de Naturaleza Trans, la obra de Marianella Morena que mostró la realidad de la frontera en el Solís y en escenarios de Argentina y España. La gurisa que se animó a contar su realidad y a darle voz a un colectivo. https://t.co/h4Wf7OBjLx— silvana nicola (@silvana_nicola) March 26, 2023
"I will remember her as one of the protagonists of Naturaleza Trans, the work by Marianella Morena that showed the reality of the border in Solís and on stages in Argentina and Spain. The gurisa who dared to tell her reality and give voice to a group."
"Thus, smiling and in a magical moment, when she said: "This experience made me stronger, it healed my wounds.""
