Gina exists in the liminal: disabled, queer, half Jewish-Latina, and half Italian-American. The daughter of a loud, loving Italian-American mother who has a thousand stories; and a disabled, Argentine-Jewish father who has too many bad dad jokes to count, she was raised by two storytellers...and after surviving multiple near-death medical incidents, inevitably became a storyteller herself.

While she exists in the space between identities, there's one thing she's sure of: creating stories through art is her lifeblood. 

She's in the process of sending out more short stories, photography, art, and poetry to different publications within the next few months, and will be graduating from Harriet L. Wilkes Honors College of FAU in Spring 2022, to (hopefully) then attend graduate school for creative writing in Fall 2023.

She is a Junior Editor for the amazing Brink Literacy Project.
