"I’ve grown up with the thought that my cultural identity was a liability. As an emerging artist and leader, I would like to explore what it means to be an asset. I am a performer, storyteller, immigrant and Latinx woman. I endeavour to nourish that intersection and put it to service." - Natércia Napoleão
