  • Spring 2021

Miryam is a first-generation Latina and DACA recipient. Her experiences, along with the bilingual and bi-cultural aspects of her identity have taught her how to serve her goals. The best way she can transform and improve the quality of life for underserved communities like her own is by becoming a physician and an advocate. She loves soursop tea.

Affordability issues I care about:

Pell Grant eligibility expansion for DACA recipients and undocumented students, and indirect expenses
