Kenia is a double major in Sociology and Social Policy & Public Service at the University of California, Irvine. She was born in Tijuana, Baja California, and migrated to the U.S. when she was 8 years old. Kenia’s parents always emphasized the importance of going to college but lacked the knowledge of how to navigate the US college application system. With the support of several non-profit organizations, Kenia was able to successfully apply to college. Her journey towards higher education has influenced her into pursuing a career in public service and advocacy for resources for Latinx youth and the undocumented community.
