Maru Huerta


I was born in Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico. As a child, I was interested in creative writing, poetry and painting. As a child, I was fortunate to be recognized in many competitions from the City. As I was growing up I decided to explore a career as a makeup artist and created my own family business. Unfortunately since adolescence , I began to develop symptoms of neurological damage and loss of muscle mass. I was diagnosed with muscular dystrophy at the age of 18.  Since then, I have made adaptations in my ordinary life and modified my daily living to be able to overcome my disability.
