"I support Immigration because we need to modernize the system. Our current immigration methods are outdated and backed up. As a result, those who truly desire to be part of the United States have very little hope of ever fulfilling that dream and must remain here "illegally" despite their efforts."

Yvonne Yvonne
Chief Academic Officer, Plaza Familia


Raised in Mexico, I immigrated to Texas after high school with my parents and younger sister, where I obtained a B.S. in Computer Sciences from UT Austin. My next stop was at Silicon Valley where I worked as a software engineer for several years before entering graduate school. Recently I graduated from UCLA with a PhD in Education. During my free time I volunteer with non-profit organizations dedicated to making technology and computing more accessible to underrepresented youth.
