Born in Venezuela, Oleñka Carrasco travelled and lived in so many different places, that she sees herself as being from everywhere, and from nowhere. After her Degree in Literature in Caracas, she moves to Spain in 2003, where she gets a Master Degree in Humanities and composes her final Thesis on “Contemporanean Latin American literature and cinema produced in the marginalized and conflictual zones of this continent; the culture as a way out of violence”. A continuation of her undergraduate thesis on urban violence in Venezuela. Both papers received the highest rating from the jury and their publication were recommended.

She lives and works in Paris.
