Daniela began her college journey back in 2007 at the University of California, Davis where she was classified as AB540 and undocumented student for tuition purposes. Going through college as an undocumented student back when there was little to no support for this student population on campus, Daniela first hand experienced the added challenges of navigating a research institution as an undocumented student. Wishing that no other student would ever have to experience the same hardships she went through as an undocumented student, Daniela focused her efforts on helping our campus community become more in tune with the specific needs of AB540 and undocumented students like herself.
