I am a first generation American and 2017 graduate of the College of Saint Benedict. While I was born in Minnesota, my parents and roots lie in Maltrata, Veracruz, Mexico. 27 years ago, my parents arrived to the United States and thanks to them, I became a first-generation college graduate and now graduate student in the Master of Public Health Community Health Promotion program at the University of MN. I am passionate about health equity among Latinx populations and have a public policy minor in order to best prepare myself in evaluating, intervening, and advocating for underserved populations in Minnesota. I’ve been to over 13 countries around the world, and I enjoy taking pictures. I look forward to working with MNCLA for this legislative session.
