Yasmin Ramirez

Yasmin Ramirez is a Mexican American writer from El Paso, whose debut memoir was released earlier this year from Cinco Puntos Press, an imprint of Lee & Low Books. She is an Assistant Professor of English, Creative Writing, and Chicanx Literature at El Paso Community College.

Her memoir, ¡Ándale Prieta!, delicately shows us the experience of a young Latina growing up on the U.S-Mexico Border and subsequent years searching for herself and fulfillment after the passing of her grandmother Ita.
