My Story

I was born in the small town of Ukiah, California, and I have two older siblings.  My parents immigrated from Michoacán, Mexico in the late 1980’s.  My father is a farmworker and my mother runs an immigration consulting business.  They instilled in me the importance of working hard and getting a good education.  I am a first-generation college student, and I firmly believe that through public service I can help create a better community. 

I am a rising sophomore at Sacramento State University majoring in Political Science and minoring in Economics.  As a CAMP participant, I received a great deal of support.  When I started school, I had only a vague idea of what I wanted for a career, but with CAMP’s support system, I know that I would like to pursue a career as an immigration attorney, and assist immigrants as they seek new lives in the United States.

In my internship, I want to gain more insight in public policy, and I hope that this unique experience helps develop the values of public service in me.  These values are so badly needed today.
