Undergraduate Research Fellow

Ethnic Studies

I am a fourth year Legal Studies and Ethnic Studies double major at the University of California, Berkeley. As a Haas Scholar and Marco Antonio Firebaugh Scholar, I am conducting my own independent research project that aims to analyze the relationship between illegality and entrepreneurship. I aim to reveal the challenges undocumented entrepreneurs face by examining how being viewed as “illegal” by law and society generates barriers to processes of assimilation and integration into the American social fabric which denies certain rights, privileges, and access to resources that foster a successful business. My research interests have stemmed from my experiences as an undocumented student with undocumented entrepreneurial parents.
