Graciela Cortez's Photo 5 of 5

Hello, you are looking at pictures before my arrest, in my prison uniform and a recent picture. You can see there are no tricks, it is just me over the years. I am a unique mixture of three of the most exotic races: Spanish, Italian and Greek. Such a mixture has made me (in part) the fun, loving and passionate person I am today.

I love the outdoors, the ocean, art, and helping others. My goals are to regain my freedom, study business and psychology. My hobbies are exercising, meditation, and reading. I have developed a passion for criminal and constitutional laws due to all of the injustice I have come in contact with.

Writing is one of the most valuable skills to have in prison because neither the prison system nor anyone else, can take that skill away from you. People confined in prison must learn how to communicate with pen; otherwise the will only have an existence inside the prison boundaries. A person who learns to communicate using a pen as their only tool will find that s/he can conquer imprisonment. 

I would like to build a network of lasting relationships with open-minded people who are knowledgeable, interested or empathetic about life behind bars. Prison is more than just a place that holds "bad" people. Success is something that requires focus, discipline and a deliberate course of action. Even in prison you can learn how to reach your highest potential by understanding how to overcome adversity, tuning out the noise of negativity and making life happen. 

Let me be a window that shows you a more real side of prison life than the one society has stigmatized. Help me to conquer imprisonment and raise awareness about the prison and justice system. Please also see my FB page.
