Arcelia is an advocate and filmmaker who focuses on bringing stories to life that demystify and humanize the Mexican American experience. Her work gives audience members the opportunity to see themselves and feel a little more understood. Arcelia infuses storytelling with social issues from first-hand and shared experiences on topics like mental health, domestic abuse, bullying, self-esteem, and challenges faced by women. She prefers to blend serious topics with a twist of comedy to keep things palatable. Arcelia holds a Bachelor of Arts in Cinema, Television, and Arts from the California State University of Northridge and a few Associate degrees: Film and Television Production (Oxnard College), Social and Behavioral Health (Ventura College), and Information Technology-Multimedia (ITT Tech). In her downtime she might be out exploring with her dog, on adventures with friends, dancing the night away, or practicing what she preaches by focusing on self-care.
