A badass latina musician and artist that empowers women of color and promotes diversity. Her love for Cheetos, coffee and nerd culture shines through occasionally.

Esperanza is based in Chicago. She will be receiving her Bachelor of Arts in Music from the University of Illinois at Chicago.

Salgado’s works primarily consist of oil and acrylic paint. Her art highlights latinx culture and the Chicano experience.

My work taps into the world that I live; the good and the bad. As a Mexican-American artist and musician, I find myself analyzing my role in society. I paint what I live and study.
