Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati Foundation



Alejandra Zamora Hernandez is from Beach Flats, a low-income, Latinx immigrant neighborhood in Santa Cruz, California. Growing up as the child of undocumented immigrant parents, her experiences fueled her desire to utilize her education to fight for legal and social justice policies. She was a California Government Executive Fellow, where she worked to shape robust environmental justice policy to protect California’s environmentally-burdened communities. As an undergraduate at UC Berkeley, she was a Cal-in-Sacramento Fellow, where she created an interactive map depicting California pro-bono immigration resources. She was also a Board Member of the Berkeley Student Cooperative (BSC) Housing nonprofit, where she assisted in re-shaping the organization’s policies to adequately protect undocumented student members from deportation. After law school, she hopes to work for the ACLU to legally challenge unconstitutional anti-immigrant laws. Alejandra is a 2023 HSF Scholar and 1L at Berkeley Law.
