Biography: I am a Gates Millennium Scholar, QuestBridge finalist, first-generation, low-income Hispanic student from rural West Texas. I currently study political science at Brown University.

Coming from a low-income, rural, under resourced community, I decided to not accept things for what they were. I founded the revitalization effort for my county’s Teen Court program to aid troubled students in my community correct past mistakes and get involved in community service. Additionally, I founded a chapter of a political organization to help voters get informed about upcoming elections and get registered to vote. I continue to be involved in community engagement by working with Brown’s Sexual Health Advocacy through Peer Education program, where I teach low-income students in Providence about sexual health. I hope to use these experiences to continue a long legacy of community service through getting involved in politics to represent those that are often forgotten.
