Born in the late 80’s and raised in the cold city of Toluca de Lerdo in Mexico, Priscila studied Graphic Design at the Autonomous University of the State of Mexico (UAEMex), where she obtained a Bachelor’s Degree. During these studies, she realized that she wanted to follow the path of the Interface Design, which she personally defines as “the opportunity to ease the users’ thoughts through well-conceptualized patterns”.

She specialized herself later on in UI, Web Design, and the basic understanding of front-end development. Other areas that she works as well are Digital Illustration and Photography. Since 2010, Priscila has worked for private and public sectors in Mexico City, mostly focused on social cause campaigns, political marketing and ancient document preservation, always teaming up with Web developers and engineers. In 2013, she got a nomination as an Illustrator and Designer in the Reed Awards of New York for her participation in a political project under the category of Best International Non-US Campaign. Among others, the projects which she has worked in were winners or nominees in different international awards, such as the Victory Awards (politics, USA), CLAP Awards (design, Latin America and Spain) and the already mentioned Reed Awards (politics, USA). She has always been interested in article writing and since 2013 works as an editor and translator in ForoAlfa.org, website dedicated to spread knowledge and experience between Latin American designers.

She defines her experience in the MAID as rich because she learned how to listen and understand multicultural ways of thinking and doing Design.

She graduated from the MAID in July 2015 with the thesis topic of emotional consequences and suicidal tendencies on children who suffer from cyberbullying, dealing mainly with the conceptual part of a 2.0 life, and a media program to present a platform to raise awareness among parents who might have children in such conditions.
