Meet Angelica Espinoza, IGNITE's San Diego Fellow

Angelica Espinoza serves as our San Diego Fellow.

She is a current grad student at San Diego State University where she is pursuing a Master of Science in Homeland Security and where she also earned Bachelor of Arts in International Security and Conflict Resolution. At SDSU, Angelica served as the Vice President of External Relations -- the first Latina to serve in over 15 years. Angelica also served on the Board of Directors for the CSU Student Association and as a council member on the College Area Community Council. 

Angelica’s upbringing in San Ysidro, a border town in CA, and as a child of immigrants truly instilled the importance of advocating for the most marginalized. She is eager to create an empowering environment where young women can discover their own unique ways to be civically engaged and learn how to use political institutions and their own narratives as a vehicle for change.
