About Indira Arce
Originally from Durango, Mexico, Indira Arce grew up in the High Desert of southern California (Palmdale) from the early age of nine. She attended UCLA as an undergrad where she majored in History and Latin American Studies. After working at a small museum for a couple years, she decided to move to Tucson in 2011 and fell in love with the city. Since then, she has worked doing Spanish interpretation and educational work around border and migration issues. She worked at BorderLinks for over four years, first as Program Organizer and then as Education Director. She is passionate about social justice and community formation.
Indira enjoys working on creative projects in her spare time: embroidery, painting, cooking (learning to) and home-improvement. Most importantly, she loves spending time with her six-year-old maltipoo puppy. She is excited to be working at the MAS department and would love to have you stop by her office!
