Diana has lived in the Bronx nearly her entire life and has always been acutely aware of the difficulties her community faces. As the daughter of Mexican immigrants and as someone who lives in a mixed-status household, immigration status and difficulties were always talked about in her community. In undergrad, Diana worked in community organizing with the Bronx Defenders and Y2Y New Haven – assisting individuals in precarious situations ranging from immigration status to homelessness. She felt most fulfilled doing direct service work with the Yale Prison Education Initiative, where she got to know and learn with incarcerated students. Diana knew that she wanted to spend her future directly working with individuals and fighting for justice and abolition. At IJC, Diana will be a Community Fellow at Part of the Solution (POTS) and looks forward to working with the Bronx community for the next two years.
