I'm Olga, an editor and freelance writer who produces poetry, short stories, and essays. I am the Managing Editor for San Francisco Bay Area Moms, where I also host a podcast called Hella MomVersations. My bylines have appeared in palabra, by National Association of Hispanic Journalists (NAHJ), Voices of Monterey Bay (VOMB), Jumble & Flow, and others. My debut collection of poetry and prose, La Llorona, was published by Birch Bench Press.
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.
I am passionate about all my creative endeavors, including motherhood, mental health, fitness, writing, and wife life.
