A freedom fighter, movement builder, and adaptive athlete, she is passionate about building collective power to win transformative policy change at all levels of government so that people can thrive. Having moved from Peru to Connecticut with her family at the age of 10, she came out as “undocumented and unafraid” while in college and organized other undocumented students to step into their power. She then served as United We Dream’s director of Advocacy and Policy, where she led the campaign to implement DACA and was part of the team that persuaded the Obama administration to protect four million undocumented Americans through DAPA.
