Chirp, chirp, everyone! My name is Sergio and I am a SoCal resident who immigrated from Usmajac, Jalisco, Mexico. Both my hometown and birth town offer a pretty warm Mediterranean climate; hence, I am lost as to how I ended up in a cold New York City. I currently work at the Immigrant Justice Corps as a Community Fellow, working to provide quality legal services and representation to some of the most vulnerable populations in the city. Before this, I spent a summer in Rome conducting research at Programma Integra about refugee migration across the Mediterranean and specific laws in place to protect refugees in Turkey.
I would love to connect with more Pomona students and hope that I can provide helpful advice/tips about post-grad opportunities. I especially welcome my first-generation, low-income, undocumented folks to reach out.
