Jesus D. Cabrera Rivera
My name is Jesus, an undergraduate student at the City College of New York pursuing a B.S. in Geology. I hope to address environmental issues in my community and pursue graduate school in the same field. Being formerly undocumented has brought me to work closely with my community and provide resources to them. Currently, I'm the Vice President of the CCNY Dream Team Club - a student club for undocumented students and allies. Also, I'm an Assistant for the Educational Opportunities Initiative, giving one-on-one consultations to improve the educational attainment for the immigrant community. And a volunteer for the Bronx River Alliance in their water quality and air quality stewardship programs. With my experiences navigating academia, I hope to continue bridging the educational gap in my community by volunteering with Cientifico Latino.
