Leo Trevino - Born and raised in San Anto’s South and West sides, Léo Treviño is a product of the city’s public-school system. He’s earned 2 B.A.s, one in History and one in Mexican American Studies from UTSA. Modeling his efforts after Norma Cantu’s Canicula, he’s currently assembling a photo auto-ethnography mapping the story of a young feminine Xicano navigating the obstacles of inner-city life in the 80s & 90s. Prior to joining the Tutoring Services team at UTSA as a Program Coordinator in 2018, Léo worked in Southside schools with at-risk students as an Academic Success Coach focusing on community and familial connections to students’ schools. When he’s not being a father to his four children, this barrio poet is enjoying hiking and camping nature’s gifts and trying not to fall off his mountain bike.
