"...what is, is what must be."

"You know me. You've know my work."
- Sr. Coneja de la Vega
Born and bred in Texas, Sister Coneja de la Vega has both skills and charms to her name, but can not count among them the ability to write concisely or clearly about herself. After moving to North Carolina to pursue a career in healthcare, the Sister focused primarily on stable employment and the pursuit of a nursing degree, and through that process learned a love of public service.
Bringing that light to her nunhood, Coneja hopes to work towards - among other goals - reducing the barriers to personal healthcare and well being experienced by her Queer kith and kin, especially trans folk, especially trans folk of color, especially trans women of color.
Along the way she hopes she'll be there for Sisters in need, with a convenient straight-or-safety pin as needed, or a silent ear to bear joy and sorrow. She's built up a survival kit, perhaps THE survival kit for surviving the rigors of small-city gay subculture, all conveniently contained in the toilet papery embrace of a 34B bra. She's learned how to use grease in new and exciting ways, and have been visited by the wondrous plague of never ending glitter... everything!
She hopes to build new connections, not just in the Sisters network, but in queer and non-profit Asheville (and beyond) because she sees the potential for existing acquaintances and friendships to grow and blossom in warm light of a good - nay even holy! - mission of simple good will and good work, liberally seasoned with Sacred Glitter!
