Abigail is a Mexican-American, first-generation college graduate. Abby graduated from the University of California, Berkeley in May of 2017 with a degree in Sociology. She worked in international immigration law firms after graduation and interned with Social Justice Collaborative during college. Both experiences have taught her much about the immigration legal system.
As someone deeply rooted in her culture, as a daughter of immigrants, and as a person deeply motivated and inspired by her family and community, she is passionate about the work that she does. She believes strongly in the services that SJC provides and in SJC’s mission. Families should not be divided by borders, artificial or natural. She am thankful to be working with SJC and hopes to one day realize her dream of attending law school to continue serving and empowering marginalized communities in the ways that they need.
