While she was born in the city of Cali, salsa capital of Colombia, Beatriz Colonia spent most of her life in Miami, turning the love of her own culture into a passionate commitment to empowering Latino communities. Her interests in social justice flourished while studying criminology and political science at Florida State University. She has worked for Democracia USA to bring voter empowerment and leadership training to the Latino community and is an advocate for survivors of domestic violence who volunteers at New York Center for Children. Beatriz loves to travel, bringing her salsa beats everywhere she goes, and never leaves for the road without her trusted companion, her camera.
