We sit down and chat with Freddy Izaguirre Merlos, poet & performance artist behind PursuingArete. Freddy's work aims to uplift central American voices and those of immigrantes to flourish and thrive. We learn more about his family's journey from El Salvador to the Pacific Northwest in the 80s. What it meant to be a little basic brown nerd there and navigating an upbringing in a pentecostal home.
