I’m a political science and journalism double-major at San Diego State University, who plans to graduate in May 2019. I was born and raised in San Diego, and thoroughly enjoy reading up on news, politics, immigration, and education issues.
My mother is an immigrant from Mexico, and my dad has always been very politically involved his entire life, particularly with migrant workers. My parents’ collective experiences have shaped me and my beliefs, and I accredit them for making me so interested in border issues. Spanish was my first language, and so I hope to use my bilingual privilege to cover issues border and immigration-related issues one day.
