About Me

A mixed girl’s journey with plants

Hello! My name is Mary. I’m a mixed, 1st generation woman of color. I grew up in San Francisco and currently live in Los Angeles. My parents are both immigrants. My mom immigrated from Shanghai, China and my dad immigrated from Esteli, Nicaragua. Both of my parents lived through historical revolutions in their native countries and carried their history and rich cultures into my childhood. I created this space to explore my biracial identity, hold space for other people who identify as mixed, and chronicle my journey caring for plants. My love of plants started when I was very young with our outdoor garden at my childhood home. I’ve always felt connected to nature and I love spending time outdoors. Thank you for being here and being part of my journey. Come say hi on my page @mixedwithplants 💚

On this website you’ll find plant, mixed identity, social justice, and local Los Angeles resources. This space is a work in progress as I continue researching, discovering my voice, and discovering the voices of our communities.
