Her recent and ongoing work, Baci, Piccoli Baci, Grandi Baci, is about meeting her father for the first time.

Her long-term personal project, Children of Immigrants, was published in The New York Times, which explores and interviews the community of children of immigrants in the United States and United Kingdom. A part of this project is permanently exhibited in the New Americans Museum. Overall, Quetzal seeks to create space for personal therapeutic processes while dismantling and exploring ideas surrounding immigration, connection, family dynamics, and identity.
