Born and raised in Mendoza, Argentina, Liza Martín left home when she turned eighteen to study for an international baccalaureate in Thailand through the United World College program. Completely alone on a foreign continent, writing became her refuge—her therapy. Once she graduated, Liza was accepted into the University of Oklahoma on a full scholarship, where she is currently studying English literature with a minor in professional writing. Being the first in her family to complete her studies abroad and the first to speak a second language, Liza aspires to represent her roots in her field of work. She writes in Spanish and English to make her art and culture accessible to both languages.
