Kim Téllez was born in Tijuana, Baja California Norte and calls Michoacán and Massachusetts home; their binational upbringing enabled a transnational identity que está al centro de como anda por el mundo. After surviving four different high schools across both countries, they took a year off from school as a Global Citizen Year Fellow in Imbabura, Ecuador where they studied Kichwa y Cosmovisión, learned from young environmental activists, and worked at a high school. Kim then went on to Brandeis University, where they had access to resources to explore an interest in scholarly research, receiving funding to pursue independent projects in Brazil and then Mexico. They were also privileged to leverage resources to travel during these years, and have been to over 20 different countries. Kim graduated Cum Laude from Brandeis with a Bachelor of Arts in Anthropology, and then moved to Boston to work as a Quality Performance Assessment Associate at the Center for Collaborative Education.
