Nancy Mejía is a writer/director from Los Angeles, CA. She is first-generation Salvadoran-American and endeavors to explore and share original portrayals of diverse, overlooked communities. She was blessed to discover the passion for storytelling and the chance to transcend the possibilities for her place in this world. She doesn't see her background as a deficit, but as an opportunity to keep cultivating stories that provoke us to search for other freedoms and connect with each other. Recently, she has been in development with mitú network for an original scripted teen drama series. Currently, she is co-creating a supernatural comedy-horror series, Dark Wolf Gang.
