“Our family was stuck in a cosmic hamster wheel of toxic love, making the same mistakes, saying the same words, being hurt in the same ways generation after generation. I didn’t want to keep playing a role in this tragedy of errors.”
Yamile Saied Méndez, Furia

“The sense of wonder and possibility – that I owed to the Argentine women who had fought for freedom before the universe conspired and the stars aligned to make me.”
Yamile Saied Méndez, Furia

“If family folklore was to be trusted, I had never learned to shut up or do as I was told.”
Yamile Saied Méndez, Furia
