Hi! I'm Kenia

An emerging scholar, writer, and multidisciplinary artist.


About Me

I'm a young writer, scholar, and multidisciplinary artist from the suburbs of Cleveland, Ohio.  I graduated from Yale University in 2021, with my BA in Computing and the Arts with an Architecture Concentration.

Now, I'm an Emerging Scholar Pre-Doctoral fellow at the Princeton University Center for Information Technology Policy and the Ida B. Well's Just Data Lab, where I research liberatory technologies, digital marronage, and Black Techno-Ecologies.

I'm a writer, multi-disciplinary artist, and dreamer. I'm passionate about environmental justice, climate fiction, and creating a world where Black folks and marginalized communities can breathe freer than we can here.
