Roxie will be serving as a Program Associate for Enroot and will be serving immigrant youth at the Cambridge Rindge & Latin School.
Roxie recently moved to Boston from Los Angeles, California after receiving the Massachusetts Promise Fellowship. As a daughter to immigrant parents from Mexico, she was also the first in her family to attend and graduate from the University of California, Davis with a bachelor’s degree in International Relations: Peace and Security. As a former foster youth and first generation college student, she also served incoming college students as a peer adviser during her undergrad. Growing up in a heavily immigrant community, Roxie wanted to give back and began volunteering at a Los Angeles based legal, non-profit that assisted immigrants currently in immigration proceedings with basic pro se motions, reviewing asylum applications and providing general group information sessions.
In her spare time, she likes to explore communities by running to local art. She also likes to read, write but enjoys binge watching television shows and movies.
