Cindy’s dedication to immigrant rights is deeply rooted in her personal experiences. While she does not see the law as a tool of dismantling the oppressive and demeaning immigration system, after witnessing the profound impact of quality legal education and representation on immigrant communities as a 2019 Community Fellow, Cindy pursued a career in immigration law. During her time at CUNY Law, Cindy was as a Pro Bono Scholar and summer legal intern at Brooklyn Defender Services, gaining valuable experience in deportation defense and advocacy. She was also a legal intern and volunteer at Make The Road NY where she provided crucial support to immigrant communities facing various legal challenges. Now, as a Justice Fellow she will continue advocating for immigrant communities, focusing on post-order of removal assistance for unaccompanied minors at UnLocal.
