Aida is a student majoring in sociology with a concentration in global and international studies at the University of Pennsylvania. She transferred to the University of Pennsylvania from Palm Beach State College, a community college in South Florida, in fall 2013. Aida first became involved in the immigrant rights movement in 2010 and since then has been dedicated to advocating for the fair treatment of immigrant youth and families. She is very concerned about the injustices Central American unaccompanied child migrants face while crossing Mexico to reach the United States. Aida hopes to continue working on immigration issues and potentially advocating for public policy to protect unaccompanied child migrants.
