Teodora was born in Puebla, Mexico. She is a passionate mother and grandmother, as well as a tireless activist. She emigrated in 2003 in search of security as she fled gender violence and the desperate search for her daughters, victims of family abduction.

Despite facing jail, Teodora flourished as an artist, studying theatre, folk dance and literature during that time. Eventually she graduated as a Technical Programmer Analyst. And she began to shine as an actress at the community center "El Hormiguero" in Mexico.

She and her daughter have been part of creating the Trans Queer Pueblo organization, as their daughter belongs to the LGBTQ+ community. In 2013, she created the Families Project, supporting migrant mothers and fathers to learn about the gender and sexuality of their children. It continues to support the mental, physical and emotional health of migrant mothers through art and literary and theatrical workshops, recreating the revolutionary community feminism of our great-grandmothers.
