The Mujeres Board
President: Gianna Garza
Hi!, I'm Gianna Garza, the president of Mujeres Latinas for Fall 2019. I am from all over the place: El Paso, TX; Phoenix, AZ; Bay Area, CA! My family is all from Mexico, primarily Torreon and Zacatecas. I lived in Senior House for two years and now live off-campus in a house with friends. I am a Course 7 (Biology) and 10B (Chemical-Biological Engineering) with a minor in Latin American Studies, and will graduate in Spring 2020. I took a year off from school to work at a Cambridge-area biotech company and discovered a love for bouldering :) I love reading, hiking, and doing logic puzzles. I welcome anyone of any identity to Mujeres activities!
Vice President: Julianna Rodriguez
Just a reggaeton-loving girl from San Diego, also an avid rock climber and backpacker. I'm studying course 2A mechanical engineering and international development with a variety of language classes to go with it. I love playing sports, dancing all night, and meeting people from all over the world!

Webmaster/Publicity Chair: Diana Flores
Hi!! I'm Diana Flores and I'm the webmaster and publicity chair for Mujeres Latinas!! As you might expect from a webmaster, I'm course 6-3(Computer Science), but my true passion is finding cute/funny gifs to send out in emails to Mujeres Latinas :P Aside from that, I love spending time with family and friends, watching Netflix, playing and watching soccer, dancing, and being in or around nature!
Secretary: Allison Serio
I'm Allison Serio, secretary of Mujeres Latinas, which means I keep minutes and keep our files up to date. I'm a junior majoring in computer science and minoring in architecture, and I'm originally from California and now live in East Campus. I really like to paint, do my radio show, and try to cook! I joined Mujeres Latinas my sophomore fall, and found it very supportive for not only latinx students but to all MIT students, giving MIT a thoughtful and diverse community that we all share. I hope you join us in our various events and welcome you to our familia!
