About The Plant Chica:
Sandra Mejia may be The Plant Chica, but The Plant Chica as a business consists of Sandra’s family, their growing staff, and the community they serve. Born in South Central LA to Salvadoran immigrant parents, Sandra and her siblings grew up helping their mother choose flowers and plants for the church where her father worked as a pastor. Sandra quickly inherited her mother’s love of plants and the joy they bring to people’s lives. After having her own son, Alem, she started The Plant Chica as a side hustle while working as a medical assistant. Sandra always connected plants with a feeling of family, and she hoped to one day turn The Plant Chica into a family business.
About Cuties Los Angeles:
Cuties is a Black & queer-owned community space providing resources and events, both virtually and in-person, to the LGBTQIA+ community. Based in Los Angeles, CA, Cuties began as a coffee shop and safe space focused on providing queer community and a place to gather that wasn’t centered around alcohol.
After losing the physical space in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Cuties founder and former owner, Virginia Bauman, transferred ownership to now CEO Sasha Jones, and the organization has continued under her guidance. Cuties’ goal continues to be to provide resources, joy, and healing to queer, trans, and gender non-conforming folks, with special focus and offerings exclusively for our QTBIPOC family.
