Senior VP of External Affairs
Major: Business Administration
Hometown: Guadalajara, Jalisco
I was raised in the city of Guadalajara in México, and I decided to move to the United States when I finished high school. My journey learning a new language and adapting to a new country was full of obstacles because of the lack of resources that were available to me. It took me a lot of time, and patience to feel comfortable just speaking English. I never imagined that this work and challenges would prepare me to transfer to the UC Berkeley Haas School of Business.
During my journey, I have also made it a priority to help expand the educational and professional opportunities available to under-represented minorities. In the past, I have helped developed programs for English language learners, incarcerated youth, state prisons and jails. I am eager to use these experiences and my enthusiasm to connect LBSA members to new opportunities.
