SV Culturist: an advocate of culture or of a particular method of cultivating mind or body through culture, i.e. through the beliefs, customs, arts, and other manifestations of human intellectual achievement.

Teresa Carbajal Ravet, M.A., Chief Culturist

I crossed the Texas-Mexican border as an eight-year-old girl. Since then, language and culture have been my struggle, my nemesis, and finally my passion and purpose. Straddling two languages and cultures was not an easy experience as it felt as if I was neither from there, nor from here. A border conflicting identity has been around for years, since the Mexican-American War of 1846. It is to this cultural, linguistic challenge that I have dedicated a professional career.
