It is a great honor to be joining the Lincoln-Goldfinch team! I am originally from Brownsville, Texas and have been living in Austin since 2015. I recently graduated from the University of Texas at Austin with a degree in American Government.
I became interested in immigration policy during the 2016 election cycle. Listening to the hostile rhetoric towards immigrants during the elections motivated me to get involved in immigrant advocacy. Growing up in a border town and living in such a diverse city as Austin has allowed me to form valuable friendships with people from different countries and cultures. It is extremely frustrating to see how misrepresented immigrants still are in several parts of the country, but it has also served me as a motivation to contribute as much as I can to my community.
I believe that once you get to know a person and see beyond how different they may look from you, you’ll find more things in common than you expected. This is the attitude that I found at Lincoln-Goldfinch Law. People who are open-minded, compassionate, and willing to give you a hand, no matter where you come from.
