yesica | MIT Center for Civic Media
Yesica, a researcher in urban design with a master's degree in Architecture and Urbanism from MIT, devotes most of her research in border issues between Mexico and the United States. She challenges the notion of pair-cities as separate entities, instead looking at them through a unilateral lens where the conflict manifested in opposing relations between needs, values, interest, and concerns of the two different entities can become the tool for negotiation among multiple systems. Following her graduation from MIT, Ms. Guerra was granted an Internship at UNESCO’s headquarters; in this organization, Ms. Guerra collaborated in the creation of a toolkit/guide for social and spatial inclusion for international migrants. Currently, Yesica is the Director of Crónicas de Héroes/Hero Reports and Research Affiliate of the Center for Civic Media.
