Co-Director of College Mentors
I am the daughter of two hard working Guatemalan immigrants from Houston, Texas. I am currently a freshman in the College of Arts and Sciences at the University of Pennsylvania. On campus I am involved with La Vida, Penn’s only publication of Latin@ interest, PennFirst, for first generation students, and Mujeres Empoderadas, a latina support group on campus. As far as my major, I came into college considering cognitive science major, I am now undecided as I think it is important to take advantage of my freshman year and explore my many interests. However, I do know that whichever major I chose, I want to work with a nonprofit. I am interested in education and human rights. My goal is to create my own nonprofit organization geared toward helping the Hispanic community get to and through higher education.
