Nilka is a teacher in Ixtepec and is 36 years old.

“Ixtepec is extremely rich in natural and cultural resources. I think it is vitally important that we preserve our traditions, since we can loose them simply by doing nothing. In that regard, I wouldn’t want to see changes that could cause Ixtepec to loose this natural or cultural value. But I also can imagine, in a best-case scenario, that Ixtepec could have a chance to be reborn.”
