Author Bio

Marco Julian Sanchez-Melchor, just Julian to his friends, is a religious studies major at Gettysburg College, class of 2024. In his work, he writes to capture his struggles as a queer Mexican-American, identifying with the term Mestizo (people of European and Indigenous descent). His art also reflects how his life has been shaped by Schizoaffective Disorder, a mental health condition combining the symptoms of schizophrenia and mood disorders such as bipolar disorder.
