Claudia Melgar is a native Houstonian raised by Central American parents. She is currently finishing her B.F.A degree in Photography/Digital Media at the University of Houston.

Over all, my work touches on subjects that reveal fights, in an emotional, physical, or social level. My goal in most of what I do is to bring out these struggles to the light of the world. I want others to be informed and aware that in a country like ours, we are blinded and many times do not realize that millions are crying out with no voice.
