Erika Sisneros

Although she grew up in Colorado, it’s her family’s New Mexican red chili sauce that reminds of home. Having grown up in a community with great need, Erika gained a passion for finding ways to prevent teen pregnancy, substance abuse, and dating violence. Just as her grandmother Patricia always stood by her side during trying situations, she hopes to serve as an advocate for low-income populations. With her strong sense of faith, and desire to implement change, Erika is on her way towards having a great impact on Latino communities.
Erika obtained her bachelors in Integrative Psychology from the University of Colorado.  She attends Claremont Graduate University for her Masters with a concentration in Community and Global Health.  She is expected to graduate in May 2016
[Éxito!] has given me confidence to try to go further in my education. I know I'm not alone in my journey or my fears," said Erika.
