Rossana was born in Guatemala. She came to this country when she was 10 years old. Like many other DREAMers, she realized academics were one area where she could excel in and focused on that throughout high school and college. Fascinated by the process of acquiring a new language and remembering what it was like to learn English as a second language, she studied Psychology and Cognitive Science during her undergraduate education, also learning Chinese along the way. She recently graduated with her M.A. in Social Work from the University of Albany and has a passion for advocating for the health of refugees and immigrants.
