Alicia Prieto was born in St. Petersburg, Russia. At 10 months old her family moved to Mexico City, where she was raised for the majority of my childhood. After 10 years of living in Mexico, her family moved to the United States and settled down in New York City. She has interested in community development and integration with cultural institutions. She has worked at the Brooklyn Museum as a Museum Apprentice, and that sparked my interest in museum education as a potential career. She currently work at the Children’s Museum of the Arts as a Teaching Artist and attends school, working on a BA in Advertising Design. She lives in Brooklyn and loves graphic novels.
