Why did you choose Trinity Washington University?
I chose Trinity Washington University because of the uniqueness, resilience and power that is demonstrated through the university’s name and what Trinity represents for women. Trinity Washington University is an institution where I am able to enhance myself freely as a young Latina woman.
How will you use your education to become a dynamic leader in your community?
I will use my education to become a dynamic leader in my community through knowledge, advocacy and law. As women, we are constantly limited to what we are able to do to excel and I plan to further my leadership in becoming an immigration lawyer and standing against injustice and stigma in society. I plan to also form my own non-profit organization that deals with lobbying policy actions and social justice issues.
If you could issue a statement to young girls that could be broadcast for the whole world to see, what would you say to them?
“THE FUTURE IS FEMALE!”
What inspires you?
My inspirations come from the multiple individuals who have taught me the true value of education, the hardships and injustices of society and the different women who have taught me the importance of always never settling for less in my life. Viewing different leaders from the past and present have motivated me to do more than gain an education but to apply this to an action to shift society for a healthier path. This pushes me to continue accomplishing more and reaching for anything possible in my path.
