I grew up in a small town in El Centro, California, which is a short twenty minute drive from a Mexican border town known as Mexicali. Primarily interested in borderlands, I plan to focus on my home valley's history. Born and raised in the Imperial Valley, I would like to research how consumer culture influences Mexican and American identity on both sides of the border.
