What does being a Johnson Scholar mean to you?

Being a Johnson Scholar has provided me with a unique and fabulous opportunity to pursue research in a field about which I am passionate. Growing up in a Latino neighborhood and having lived life on both sides of the border, the issues surrounding immigration, and women leadership, are at the core of my being, and I am grateful to help bring new insight to this hot and controversial topic.
