As the communications associate, Karina manages The Network’s social media accounts and online presence. She has previous experience working in the communications field for nonprofits through her experience at the Illinois Community for Displaced Immigrants.
Having been an undocumented immigrant herself, Karina uses communications to share the stories and voices of the undocumented immigrant community. After creating a theatrical play sharing stories of undocumented immigrant students, Karina hopes to continue her passion of using various forms of art to advocate for systemic change.
Outside of communications, Karina has experience working as an advocate for DACA recipients, a case manager for homeless youth, and administrative assistant for experiential learning opportunities for college students.
