Welcome Brenda Romero

Dear CSN Family,

Please join me in welcoming Undocumented Student Programs Coordinator Brenda Romero to CSN’s Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion.

‌As an immigrant and first-generation college graduate, Brenda is excited to join CSN in her new role as the Undocumented Student Programs Coordinator. Having been a DACA recipient herself, she understands the barriers that many students encounter as they pursue their educational dreams. Brenda has always been passionate about education; providing resources, 1-1 support, and advocating for underserved first-generation students, primarily Undocumented in the Vegas community.

‌For the past five years, Brenda had the pleasure of supporting high school students at Fulfillment Fund Las Vegas, a non-profit organization dedicated to breaking down barriers to support students as they strive to reach their post-secondary dreams. She served many roles at FFLV, creating college access-focused curriculum and teaching grades 9th-12th as a college access advisor, supporting students through the college application process as a college counselor, and supporting her department by developing new programming initiatives as their high school programs coordinator.

‌Brenda has continued to stay engaged in efforts to create equitable opportunities for Undocumented students at all levels of education. Although she considers herself a Vegas native, she is proud to be de alla, y de aqui, (from there and here) calling Estado de Mexico her native home.

‌She obtained an AA from CSN (while serving as ASCSN President) and a Bachelor of Science in Human Services with a minor in Family Studies from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. Brenda loves exploring the outdoors, trying new coffee shops, and spending time with her family and doggy, Rocco. Let’s give Brenda a warm welcome back to the CSN community!
