Daniela Kristelle Gutiérrez Quintana
Role: Language Support
Location: Monterrey, Mexico
Kristelle is from Monterrey, México, and has always felt captivated by the power of words as sources of endless creation. She is passionate about art ––especially literature and music–– and is always looking to read literary fiction about existential dread and the diverse experience of womanhood.
She is currently pursuing a B.A. in Hispanic Literature at Tec de Monterrey and wants to dedicate her life to reading and writing –––in whatever shape that comes, although she is particularly inclined to research and teaching. As such, she has participated in many literary and cultural studies conferences in which she has enjoyed discussing feminist and Marxist approaches to literature written by women.
Since she entered her degree in 2019, she has participated in several events that have sparked her interests. In the same year, she was President of the University Association of Humanities, which focused on fostering student-led cultural projects. In 2020, she was part of the organizing committee for the Gender Equity Forum of Tec de Monterrey, and in 2021 she was the general director of her student society’s annual event, “Vox Orbis” ––a series of conferences around the literary tradition, which welcomed renowned authors such as Mariana Enríquez and Verónica Gerber Bicecci, and cultural studies scholar, Dr. Ignacio Sánchez Prado (Washington University in St. Louis).
