Bienvenidos! My name is Marisela Martinez-Cola
(pronounced Ma-dee-sela).
I am a Chicana born and raised in Battle Creek, Michigan.
Hence the phrase MiChicana.
Furthermore, since┬áKellogg’s Cereal is headquartered in my hometown,
I also call myself the original frosted mini-wheat
(fun on one side, serious on the other).

I am often asked about three things:
My research (which I love)
My weight loss (which I’ve battled) and
My thoughts on race, ethnicity, and difference.
As a result, I’ve decided to put my passions out for the world.

Welcome to this journey!
