In 2008, Hanna Niklewicz packed her bags and bid adieu to the United States, where she was born and raised. The ten years plus she has spent in Guadalajara, Mexico have proven fulfilling and productive; she has written a collection of short stories, translated several short works of fiction from various Mexican writers (among them, Ignacio Mondaca), and in 2016, undertook a graduate degree in Translation & Interpretation at the Universidad Autónoma de Guadalajara. She also realized that her family’s East European (Polish) heritage prepared her well for embracing the Mexican culture (she sees compelling parallels between the two).
