Nerea Hernandez is pursuing a bachelor’s degree in anthropology. Her multicultural background and geographical location has helped Nerea develop an interest in border studies and Latino culture in the United States. Along the lines of these topics, she is also interested in social justice, equity, and education. Nerea is most recently involved in the Women and Gender Studies Program. Most of the projects she has helped with involve helping the Latino community. The last projects she participated in included the creation of a leadership certification program for community leaders and a local initiative to promote Latina mental health and offer services to the participants. Nerea is deeply driven by her culture and heritage and seeks to help promote the idea of embracing one’s heritage and feeling comfortable as a hybrid in our multicultural country.
