Biography

Melba (they/she) is an artist, cultural and community organizer from Pacoima, CA (a true Valley Girl). They have a degree in Chicanx Studies and Feminist Studies from UC Santa Barbara, although she started as a film major and quickly changed paths after constantly being scolded for “making everything about race or gender”. Melba worked as a community organizer and community arts director for the South Bay Center for Counseling for several years, until she was able to turn her excessive screen time into a career in social media and became the digital community manager for the Feminist Center for Creative Work. Aside from taking selfies, Melba loves to knit, binge TV shows and rant about the current state of the world. They also enjoy slow hikes and dancing the night away in sketchy DTLA warehouses.
