Latinitas would like to extend our deepest appreciation to our Aim High Co-Chairs – Lucia Hernandez and Stephanie Moreno. Both women have educational and career experience in the science field and took on the role of inspiring the next generation of female leaders in the fields of science, technology, engineering and math.
Lucia Hernandez was motivated to join Latinitas because she wanted “to give back to my community.” She has a masters in public health from UTEP and currently works at the YWCA coordinating the Two Should Know program. “I feel that with my experience in the work force I have skills that can help move the mission of the latinitas forward. I hope to help young Latina women embrace themselves and become strong, confident, independent woman.”
