A LITTLE ABOUT ME
I am a beautiful Latina, born and raised in San Antonio, TX. I attended the frozen tundra aka UW Madison. While there, I organized to create a space and a voice for students of color across the larger campus community. I earned a degree in Afro-American Studies and History. Three days after my last final I moved to sunny CA and the beautiful city of Oakland, where I have lived for the past ten years. I spend my free time with my blended family, raising a dynamic eight-year-old girl who is in Oakland public schools.
 
WHY I AM COMMITTED TO THIS WORK
I am committed to social justice and racial justice in education. I am dedicated to ensuring all students, specifically first generation college students, immigrant students and students of color have access to higher education.
 
FUN FACT(S)
Almost all line dances are my favorites dances...soy Tejana! I have a beautiful, old, loving dog. I love trying various worldly foods found throughout the Bay Area. I enjoy getting in the car and seeing where the wind takes us....
 
WORDS THAT GUIDE ME
"Education is the property of no one. It belongs to the people as a whole. And if education is not given to the people, they will have to take it." - Che Guevara
