The Tortilla Kid

Chican@. Activist. Wannabe Writer.

www.TheTortillaKid.com is my outlet for sharing my “coming of age” story, growing up in little ole’ Lake Arthur, New Mexico, to a mother, Maria Rubio, who discovered the face of Jesus on a tortilla two years before my birth.

Although my blog is an attempt to set the record straight about my mom’s story and her experiences dealing with the pressures surrounding the hype and publicity of that October 5, 1977 “discovery,” I also enlighten you with my ups and downs of being...The Tortilla Kid.

In addition to #writing, I like #fashion #food and my dog, #Lennon.

Today, I’m celebrating with my sister, @challorubio, who received an award for her 35th year of service at @TobosaTDS. She started working at #Tobosa a month before I was born. So yeah…I’m 35. Congrats, Rosy!
