In 2013 she won the III International Aura Estrada literature and in 2014 an honorable mention in the National Prize Of Essay on Photography. She has taught workshops in visual writing, abstract writing and mural writing in various cultural institutions of the Mexican Republic, as well as the subjects of theory of art and drawing in programs of
 Superior artistic education. She is editor in the cooperative Tumbona Ediciones, whose catalog explores the crosses between literature and art, and tutor of the Seminar
