Karen E. Banda
I am a sophomore at Smith College, double majoring in Government and Latin American Studies, with a theme in Latino Immigration Studies. I am a SWAG to College Intern/Mentor/Mentor Manager, EMERGE Scholar Board Founder and President, Smith College Nosotr@s Conference Chair, Smith College Pre-Law Society Social Chair, Capen House Social Events Coordinator, and the Office of Multicultural Affairs Intern. I love being part of SWAG and EMERGE because of my passion and dedication in college access for minority students. After college, I would like to pursue (hopefully) a Fulbright Research Fellowship in México and then a JD in either Human Rights, International Law, or Immigration Law. I am passionate about closing the educational gap and equal opportunities for all.
