Stephanie Huerta-Ramirez is a first-generation student studying at the University of Washington. She is double majoring in Sociology and Law, and Societies & Justice.
This past semester Stephanie interned with the Worker Defense Committee at Casa Latina, a non-profit organization that serves the Latinx immigrant community. She worked with potential employers to ensure the safety of workers during their job and studies the State of Washington’s worker rights laws.
Stephanie is a member of the Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers (SHPE) in Seattle as had been the Chair of the fundraising Committee. During this time she developed and designed a sponsorship packet for potential sponsors. Stephanie has facilitated events for middle and high school students to encourage them to continue their education and pursue a secondary education with a focus in STEM.
She served one year as the Ambassador for the Latino Educational Achievement Program (LEAP) in Olympia, WA.
Stephanie is interested in learning more about non-profit organizations and believes that the internship with NAWJ will provide that opportunity. She also look forward to learning in greater depth about immigration consequences of criminal, civil and family proceedings and be able to apply what I learn from my classes to help ensure justice comes to those who have been suppressed and have been historically disadvantaged.
After graduation, she plans to attend law school to study immigration law to help empower disadvantaged communities and give back to her community.
