Laura was born in Mexico City and grew up in Brewster, a small rural agricultural town in central Washington. She graduated from Western Washington University with a Bachelor of Arts degree with a double major in American Cultural Studies and Spanish and a minor in Women Studies. Her passion towards social justice has lead her to advocate for the DREAM Act, the attainment of higher education and the representation of underrepresented communities. At Western she had the opportunity to work with high school students at conferences as a mentor. While there, she also had the privilege to intern for the office of admissions and the Center for Education, Equity and Diversity. As an activist she learned that it is not just about being an ally but also about being an advocate. One of the things that keeps her passion lit is the appreciation and support of her family and friends as well as the youth that she has worked with. The impact that her community has made, regardless of the barriers and expectations, helps her stay positive. Laura believes that many struggles and perhaps individuals who are not supportive will always lay ahead but it is important to keep in mind that whatever we want to achieve is possible, "Si Se Puede!" Yes you can and the next time you see that struggle or individual you will be able to say, "Si Se Pudo!"
