This is Lavinia’s first performance with Center Street Theatre Co. Lavinia was born in El Salvador, moving to the United States when she was 11-years old. After witnessing the ways immigrants were treated, she put all her effort into learning English and American culture to avoid that kind of treatment. After moving to Nashville to go to college, she began to reconnect with her upbringing and culture, learning to be proud of her heritage, her language, and her history.
