Mayra Isabel Mendoza

Myra was born in Fresno, Califonia, but grew up in a small town in Michoacan, Mexico. She is of indigenous origin. Thanks to the support of her mom, she went to school and was able to study political science, which is her passion. When she turned 27, she decided to live in the United States to give her children a better life. And she found herself with the problem of communication because she did not speak English.

Currently her children attend school in Raisin City, a community made up primarily of immigrant indigenous families. Her intention is to promote the participation of families in the active life of their children’s education.
