Noemi Paez is a third year undergraduate at UC Berkeley, majoring in Urban Studies. She is involved in the Latino Business Student Association and Reflejos de Mexico Ballet Folklorico.
Her passion to create a positive living environment for immigrant communities strives from personal experiences. She has witnessed the affects of families when they are separated by deportation. For this reason, she decided to work with Social Justice Collaborative to work towards a positive change for her community. With her education and passion she wants to advocate for immigrant rights through proper legal representation.
In the future she wishes to attend graduate school and eventually obtain a career advocating for immigrant rights. After graduate school, she wants to work in a non-profit that also strives for social justice. Her ultimate goal is to continuously work giving back to her community.
