Law school-bound graduate fighting for immigration rights

Inspired to fight for immigration rights, Aimee Carrazco ’16 utilized an internship at the District Attorney’s office in San Rafael and an internship in Immigration Law at E & M Mayock to springboard her to the University of San Francisco School of Law.

Going to law school beginning the fall of 2016 has kept Aimee on a path to serve immigrant communities as the USF School of Law offers international summer abroad programs, including studying the legal system in Mexico while she can participate in an immigration clinic. Her deeply personal mission is to help restore dignity in hard-working immigrants.

Last summer, as part of California's Migrant Education program, Aimee worked as a Mini-Corps teacher, serving as a role model for migrant students.

An English major in the School of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences, it is Aimee’s aim now to study in Latin America to address immigration issues.

Aimee, who competed on the cross country team at Dominican, was on the run since she arrived on campus. Through the Service-Learning Program, she tutored underserved youth in Marin County with Catholic Charities and the Coleman LEAP program.

A member of the Siena Leadership team and the daughter of Mexican immigrants, Aimee participated in Campus Ministry immersion alternative spring break trips. One of them took her to El Salvador and left an impression, opening her eyes to injustices of the world.
