Nadia Asencio is a first-generation Cuban-American writer and artist residing in New York City. Her expressionist art combines elements of her Euro-Caribbean roots with contemporary styles that evoke both introspection and social consciousness. She's a proud U.S. Army veteran and member of the Society of Professional Journalists with a BA in International Relations and Economics from Florida International University. Her passion for politics and the written word was inherited; it runs in her blood.
