As a daughter of Mexican immigrants raised in Queretaro, Mexico, Fernanda developed her passion for helping communities in need at a young age. She has spent most of her adult life advocating for immigrant rights in various capacities, first as a community organizer, then as a Department of Justice Accredited Representative, and now as an immigration attorney. While in law school, she served indigent asylum seekers as an Equal Justice Works student fellow, a John J. Curtin, Jr. Justice Fund Legal Fellow and served the Massachusetts community as part of The Harvard Legal Aid Bureau.
Fernanda is originally from Texas but has called Camarillo home since 2022. She has a strong connection with the farm working community because her grandfather worked the fields in Texas as a Bracero. Fernanda is a proud Tillman Scholar and continues to serve her community everywhere she goes. Through her experiences, she has learned that dedication, passion, and drive can spark change and empower others to work alongside each other for prosperity.
