Estefania was born in Tepatitlan, Jalisco and came to the United States at the age of six with her mom and two sisters. The four of them moved in with her grandma and the rest of the extended family. It was her family that created a strong foundation for her to continuously thrive. She began to actively participate in the immigrant rights movement in 2012 and has participated in various capacities. She has been a student, an educator, a community organizer, an activist, and a lobbyist. She believes that there is room for all types of participation, and everyone can choose whether or not they want to participate and in what way. Throughout this journey, she is most grateful for the number of people she has had the opportunity to meet and be impacted by.
