Jaqueline Mejía-Cuéllar is the daughter of immigrant parents from Mexico and El Salvador. Ms. Mejía-Cuéllar has dedicated her career to advocating for immigrant and reproductive justice rights at the National Immigration Law Center, FWD.us, and If/When/How: Lawyering for Reproductive Justice. An Oakland native, she hopes to practice human rights law in the Bay Area after graduation. The law is often inaccessible and confusing the most vulnerable communities. Ms. Mejía-Cuéllar hopes to challenge that fact by providing direct representation to low-income communities. Her unique perspective as a Latina with six years of non-profit work experience from a working-class background will be invaluable to the legal profession. Gloria is a first-generation law student and 1L at UC Hastings College of the Law.
