I am originally from Mexico, but I migrated to D.C. and have been living there for almost 14 years. I am passionate about immigration, the environment, and making sure that youth have the support they need in order to succeed. This is why I hope to continue to create safe and inclusive spaces where immigrant youth can learn how to organize around intersectional issues.
