How did your experience at John Jay help put you on the path to success?

Being an English Major prepared me for my career as a Government Grants Coordinator with the NYC Department of Social Services. Every day I come to work feeling excited to write grant proposals for social change in my hometown, NYC. Writing is my tool for freedom, self-expression and advocacy. I graduated with my Master of Public Administration from NYU Wagner Graduate School of Public Service to continue embarking on my journey as a writer - using all of the skills and techniques I learned at John Jay to be an advocate for justice. I am excited to continue learning, growing and writing for social impact as a first-generation Latinx public servant.
