Hola! It’s Genesis Ramirez and now I am currently a senior at North Carolina State University pursuing a degree in communication with a concentration in public relations and a minor in Spanish. I come from a community that values unity and helping others. This has taught me the importance of amplifying voices that often go unheard, which drives my passion for public relations.
In the past I have been part of SAF through their Levante program which opened many doors for me and honestly pushed me to dream bigger. Ever since the term for the Levante program ended that year, I knew I wanted to go through another program with SAF. Which is why this year I decided to join Solidaridad, to make a meaningful impact and to continue to support farmworkers and advocating for their rights and fair treatment. My past experiences in the community have fueled my desire to contribute to social change which I believe is exactly what we need now.
As this journey begins, I’m most excited about collaborating with the like-minded individuals in the program who are all very intelligent and compassionate people. I’m looking forward to learning from their diverse perspectives and I can’t wait to apply my communication skills and my background to create positive change in the lives of those I’ll be advocating for.
As of now, I don't have many fears when it comes to the program, my only worry could be not being able to do more, because I know that there is so much work to do. Nonetheless, I’m determined to make a meaningful impact in the community.
