Student Engagement Coordinator, CDIE


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.
