How this UCLA Student Is Working to Tear Up Latino Stereotypes and Replace Them With Realities

Focusing on Potential

mitú met Bernardette Pinetta this summer at the NCLR Líderes Summit in Kansas City, where she was excited to share her story for #WeAreAmerica. She told us about the work she is doing with at-risk youth. She told us about how high school friends would come over to use her home printer and wifi because they did not have basic technology at home. She recognizes the struggle her parents went through when they came to the U.S. to give her a better opportunity and now she’s working to pay it forward. Bernardette is a student at UCLA.
