Magaly Arredondo Lopez was born and raised in Austin, Texas. Her roots extend towards Mexico where her parents were born and her journey began. Magaly’s curious and restless mind led her to a formal education in Sociology and Spanish at St. Edward’s University. More informally, she has received her education through family, relationships, friendships, and experiences shared with others. She is dedicated to sharing and creating accessible resources and experiences with communities facing systemic barriers (like racism) so that they may continue to meet their potential and thrive. A firm believer in community and connection, Magaly hopes to not only serve her community, but to learn and grow with them, too.
