Bio

Desiree is from Raleigh, NC, and recently graduated from UNC-Chapel Hill. She received her B.A. in Biology and minored in Medical Anthropology and Medicine, Literature, and Culture. She felt compelled to work with Juntos because of her own positive experiences in afterschool programs and her struggles while applying to college as a first-gen. Juntos providing students with the tools they need to make accessing higher education easier was all the reason she needed to join the team. As the VISTA, Desiree is committed to build the capacity of juntos and create sustainable resources that will continue to serve the community.
