Johany was born in Michoacan, Mexico and moved to Bakersfield, California at age 11. Living in the Central Valley, she saw all the injustices that happen and the lack of resources available to undocumented immigrants who work mainly in the fields of the valley.
Johany graduated from University of California, Merced with a Bachelor’s degree in Spanish. She wants to empower and support the undocumented community in any way she can.
In her free time, she enjoys reading and hiking.
