      I'm extremely proud of you, Aurora. You're a spearhead not just for Latino/a filmmakers, but for independent films - period. The way in which you've given life to MyM feels really revolutionary and it's very exciting. What a story it will be if in 12 months we're actually talking about your Oscar run! ¡Un fuerte abrazo, chica!
