Despite her calm demeanor, Kendra Arciniega is not the kind of person who likes riding in the passenger seat of life. Instead, she prefers to floor the car, expertly dodging a slew of obstacles that try their best to slow her down. Arciniega is on a mission to bring Latin X and queer artists to the forefront of Anchorage's sometimes clique-ridden art scene, and with her wife Mercedes at her side, nothing can stop her.

"I grew up never feeling connected to Anchorage," Arciniega explained over a horchata at Cafecito Bonito. "Honestly, I hated it here. So, I moved away, went to college, lived in LA for a bit, and then decided it was time to reclaim Anchorage."
