Jenah Maravilla

JENAH MARAVILLA (she/her) wrote the Foreword of The Kuwento Book: An Anthology of Filipino Stories + Poems. She may be an organizer and activist, but Jenah has always been a writer. An Alumnus of both Texas A&M University and Texas Tech Health for B.S. in Nursing, Maravilla permanently pivoted away from healthcare when co-authoring Filipinos in Houston with Christy Poisot. Alongside being the founding Secretary of UniPro Texas and participating in both FANHS Houston and Filipinx Artists of Houston, she became inspired by our storytellers to show up in historically exclusive spaces. All of Maravilla’s work centers around honoring those that came before, empowering those present, and shifting the conversation to radical vulnerability.
