I am an Afro-Dominican woman born and raised in the Bronx. I am a writer and certified birth doula. I am a member of the International Center for Traditional Childbearing (ICTC), a sister of Mu Sigma Upsilon Sorority, Inc., and the Intangible Collective. The focus of my work is the empowerment of women and people of the African Diaspora, specifically discussing the Afro-Latina Identity. I utilize my experience as a birth doula to raise awareness on maternal and infant health for womyn of color, highlighting the disparities in the healthcare system in the United States. In October 2009, I completed and self-published my literary work called ‘Hija De Mi Madre’ (My Mother’s Daughter), which is a combination of memoirs, poems and research material that not only explain the effects of race on identity from an academic standpoint but also shares my life as a living example. I am working on returning to school to become a certified nurse-midwife to continue to advocate for womyn and their overall well-being.

Tracy Soren aspires to write, act, and film things. She is a fervent supporter of temping and tells all those facing rough economic times to become temporary. She gained many useful things from temping, ie. an umbrella, free peach lotion, a rented tuxedo, a Starbucks gift card, independence, employment, cash papa dollas, left over food, soul-enriching relationships, and a tote bag she always uses! After years of performing spoken word and competing in poetry slams, she randomly signed up for a sketch writing class AND finally read the Harry Potter series. Needless to say, both were life-changing. She is now following her childhood dream of being in comedy and banking with goblins.Tracy is currently studying improv, sketch comedy, and video sketch at the Upright Citizens Brigade Training Center in New York. In her free time, people tell her the endings to the books she is reading.
