Student Art Contest

Daniela Fernández 

CAMP | Arizona State University. 

Daniela Fernandez Romero is a sophomore at Arizona State University majoring in Architectural Studies. Originally from San Luis Rio Colorado, Sonora, she immigrated to San Luis, Arizona with her mother and younger sister when she was 8. 

Daniela credits the help of the Migrant Education Program for her being able to master English within a year after immigrating, and later helping her pay for Advanced Placement classes in high school. The first in her in family to go to university, her mother and sister support her aspirations though the rest of her family doesn’t understand why she is continuing her education.

Daniela chose to study Architecture as she likes to draw and look at buildings. A dedicated student, Daniela likes to challenge herself. For example, in addition to the rigorous classes required in her major, she is also learning Japanese as she would like to be tri-lingual.

The art piece she created for the HEP/CAMP National Association is inspired by her own experiences as a CAMP student as well as her mother’s experience as a fieldworker in melon and lettuce.

Student Art Contest Winner

Winner - Jovany Remijio

CSU | Monterey

Jovany is from King City, California, and a first-year student at California State University, Monterey Bay.  "I am a business major. I am the youngest of 4 siblings and I am also the first one in my family that will graduate from college. I eventually would like to own my own business and become a management consultant. My love of creating art derives from silence. There is not a word that I have to say when art speaks. As a person who always talks a bit too fast or even stutters a bit too much, art never fails to make itself clear. That is my love for art. The inspiration for this art piece came from a 5-minute meditation. During those five minutes, I could only think of one thing; Why? Why am I continuing school? Why am I here? Why do I feel the way I do? These are questions that I ask myself every so often to further my drive and motivation. I’m doing this for my parents who’ve already made so many sacrifices. I’m here to be the best person I can be and help others. I feel motivated because I have an opportunity that I will not allow to pass me by. CAMP has always and will always continue to feel like family. The continuous support and motivation I receive from this program is indescribable. The program is filled with so many people who really care to connect with you and your situation. Thank you, CAMP.
