Esperanza graduated from Aquinas College in 2020 with a bachelor of arts degree in
sociology. As a student, she was involved in the Latinx Student Association (LXSA),
the Jane Hibbard Idema Women’s Studies Center as an intern, and with the Center for
Diversity, Inclusion and Equity as a diversity assistant. These opportunities shaped
her into an advocate for change and social justice. Esperanza is passionate about
creating spaces for students of color and first-generation students. In her free time,
Esperanza enjoys watching horror/thriller movies, listening to music, a good iced
coffee and especially talking about all three of those things with her friends.
