About this author

Sara Alva is a former small-town girl currently living in big-city LA with a husband, two cats, and an avocado tree. She recently discovered— after a year in her house— that she also has a fig tree in her backyard, which might mean she needs to get out more. But sometimes the stories waiting to be told demand more attention, and when she puts fingers to keyboard, it’s usually to write about journeys of self-discovery, heartache, personal growth, friendship and love. When she isn’t writing, she’s teaching or dancing.

In 2008, I was a recent transplant to the city of Los Angeles. I reveled in the diversity and in the social atmosphere—one very different from what I’d known in my previous rural town. My friends and colleagues in graduate school were of different backgrounds, different ethnicities, and different sexualities, but we all shared mostly liberal sensibilities—not unusual, as our program had “social...
