Andrea Medina

Born in Mérida and raised in the heart of the Peninsula, I consider myself a “yucaterca.” My childhood – without electronics, surrounded by nature and indigenous communities – made me sensible towards real, simple, genuine things and people. At age 7, I started a radio show with the XEPET “The Voice of the Maya” which allowed my imagination and creativity to develop and become my favorite space.

Music has been a driving force in my life although I don’t play any instruments (yet). I have a strong blood for social justice, a passion for science and letters, and a special interest in healing, agriculture, and education. I’m a biologist with a doctorate in Mesoamerican studies, focused on Maya cultures. I love writing, learning and sharing. Sunsets, performances, and water (in all of its forms) are my weak spot.
