I'm Olga, an editor and freelance writer who produces poetry, short stories, and essays.

My debut collection of poetry and prose, La Llorona, was published by Birch Bench Press.
In March of 2023 I wrote about the flooding and levee breach in Pajaro, CA. -published by Voices of Monterey. It is heartbreaking to see my hometown burdened with flooding. Please give to the Santa Cruz County Disaster Fund today. My follow-up story about the continued hardships in Pajaro, CA can be found here.
In October of 2022, THINK/NPR and host Krys Boyd, interviewed me about How Latino culture can make it hard to talk about mental health. We discussed my article, Los Curiosos, published by palabra.
My philanthropy and activism started in 2019 with a non-profit benefiting first-generation and immigrant students, The Rosales Sisters' Scholarship. Since then, the Rosales Sisters' Scholarship has raised $50,000. As the President and Co-Founder of this organization, I am proud of what we've accomplished so far, and I'm excited about our future.
