NANCY C. MEJÍA

Nancy C. Mejía's involvement with NALIP began when she volunteered for the 2015 NALIP Media Summit because she could not afford a pass to the event by the time she heard about it. She drove the transport van for a week and was so busy she did not actually make it into the Summit. However, her hard work and dedication received recognition, and she was later able to showcase her short film as part of the Latino Lens program.

After a recommendation by NALIP, an original pilot script, and two rounds of interviews, Nancy was hired as a staff writer on her first series by STARZ. Nancy recognizes it's a privilege to start her professional television career in such a diverse, inclusive writer's room and looks forward to practicing and refining her craft as a storyteller. She most recently worked as an executive story editor for the series The L Word: Generation Q.
