I am a designer, educator and community organizer based in Toronto, Ontario. I make things, think about feminism and the future, and create delightful experiences. You can often find me on my bike exploring Toronto's green spaces, or developing interactive electronics interfaces for clothing in my studio.

Amilia Cervantes is currently pursuing an academic career in the field of Urban Studies a the University of Toronto. She has a great interest in current city issues, as well as development in the city of Toronto and elsewhere. The perpetual motion and dialogue of the city is what intrigues her most. She loves to uncover the stories hidden within the landscape and culture of Toronto. These stories and personal understandings of the urban space are what she advocates, to make the urban public space a public discourse for everyday people. She strives to promote positive development and narratives for inclusive communities in the City of Toronto.
The Global Community Builder volunteer team helps community leaders bring Jane's Walk to their cities. They conduct outreach to new City Organizers, answer questions, and forge connections between the project office and cities around the world.
The Jane's Walk social media volunteer team convenes and supports an active peer network of city-builders, community organizers, civic activists, and urbanists from around the world. They run the social media feeds, including the Humans of Jane's Walk portrait project.
