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.
