To go along with the release of Surviving Camino Del Diablo, we have a message from Gabriela Downie:

 

The story I worked on felt relatable in the sense that many of us born in Latinx households are often called to make decisions that aren't suited for our age, experience, or expertise. Evenso, many of us at young ages understand the basic instinct to survive and it pulls us through a lot of uncertain or traumatizing life experiences.
 
These moments can either help build our character, or are responsible for holding us back from living fulfilling lives. It's important to acknowledge this when interacting with anyone, the possibility that any one of use could have survived unspeakable situations in unfair circumstances.
 
As long as we remember this, and appreciate the gravity of it, meeting each other with mutual respect and dignity is possible, and should be our ultimate goal. -- Gabriela Downie
