My parents’ immigration story, my status as a first generation Latinx and my upbringing in a poor socioeconomic society inspired me to seek a degree in Political Science at St. Mary’s University. My education and the mentors I gained along the way gave me an unwavering passion for a life in public service and transformed me into a leader who aspires to instill change in her community.
St. Mary’s allowed me to see the world. With the support of my professors and mentors, I stepped foot on unfamiliar territory. My professors’ lectures bolstered my passion for civic engagement, immigration policy and international politics. I attribute my skills, knowledge and passion to my collegiate career at St. Mary’s. I cherish the memories, connections and passions I acquired during the most epic time of my life.
