Isabel has moved 4 times in her life, including her move to Los Angeles where she currently resides. She was 4 years old when she left Florida to live in Georgia. In 5th grade, she moved to another suburb in Georgia where life changed drastically. The community was primarily white, whereas the elementary school that she previously attended was mostly Black and Hispanic. She found it extremely difficult to assimilate, growing to hate her first language and culture, spending much of my youth wrestling with a split identity.
However, once she moved to Athens, GA at 18 and began classes at UGA, Isabel found others who had the same "double-life" experience: growing up in Hispanic households while living in white communities. These friendships really pushed her to embrace all the different parts of herself, including her aspiration of editing science fiction television. She lived in Athens for 4 years during my studies and moved a few months after graduation over to Los Angeles.
