Laura Fernández is currently completing her third year at San Francisco State with a major in Broadcast and Electronic Communication Arts and a minor in Criminal Justice. She was born and raised in El Salvador until she was 10 years old. Her experience as a first-generation immigrant and all the recent events occurring in the country led her to choose a career in media that allows her to help the Latino community stay informed about the events that are affecting them, events that benefit them and to provide a way in which they can share their stories with the world. Her ultimate goal is to help them take action and stay engaged in conversations and decisions that affect their communities through documentaries, stories, and other media content.Laura has volunteered as a photographer for the Resist documentary premier, a story about two undocumented students at SF State, and with Silicon Valley Latino as a media sponsor to BeVisible's "BeWokeSF" event. She was inspired by Cultura Ambassador, Andrea Guendelman's vision, signature event and how she created a platform inviting key leaders to dialogue and share insights to under-represented groups about diversity, inclusion, and career success.She is eager to expand her knowledge and expertise in media, thus she is currently looking for job or internship opportunities for this summer and her last year at SF State. In the future, she looks forward to continuing to learn and serve her Latino community by providing a service in which they can share their stories.Laura keep up the great work! We look forward to keeping an eye on you and collaborating with you more in the future! #CreoEnTi
