An Autism Ally with Raquel Rojas

An Autism Ally with Raquel Rojas

Raquel was born and raised in Mexico but now lives in Switzerland. For the longest time she always wondered why she felt like she never belonged. When her son was diagnosed with Austism, she realized she needed to learn more about Autism starting with getting herself tested. In this episode Raquel talks about being an ally to the Autism community, how she started her business and learning to look at life from a different perspective. This is her story.


Raquel was born and raised in Mexico City, to later be transplanted to Switzerland. 

She's proudly autistic and queer. She loves loud music, warm weather, and Italian food. Raquel also happens to be a mom and a wife. 

When it comes to business, she's passionate about communications and design. Raquel specializes in creating  digital marketing strategies for BIPOC women-owned brands and businesses. 

She's also an intersectional feminist, antiracist and vegan.
