Yvette Ibanez

Oceanside, CA

Three college graduates in one year, and all of us are first generation college students from immigrant parents. We’ve all had to overcome our own obstacles to be where we are right now, but it in the end it was all worth making our families proud! My primos and I have defied odds, and we will continue to do so for our family and for our gente! This Engineer, Educator and Computer Scientist are here to stay!

Let's Talk

It's time for a new conversation about immigration in America, and it starts with us.
