Destina, Age 25

 In Season 6

Destina is a first-generation Chicana and a first-year PhD student. She talks about how the Catholic Church’s violence against indigenous people, among other things, has made her question the religion she was raised in. Her close personal relationship with La Virgen — who Destina understands as pre-Hispanic — is the reason why Destina says she has not completely disaffiliated from the Church.
