Hello! My name is Michelle Rivera Lopez, and I am a San Francisco Bay Area native. I am currently a third-year undergraduate student at UC Berkeley, double majoring in Sociology and Ethnic Studies. I am passionate about studying race, ethnicity, and migration. My academic interests arose from being raised by immigrant parents and living in a predominantly low-income immigrant community. After completing my undergraduate degree, I hope to enroll in a J.D. program and become an attorney. I enjoy painting, going on walks with my dog, and spending time with my family in my free time.
