Aracely is from Poughkeepsie, NY, and recently received her BA in History from SUNY New Paltz. As a proud daughter of immigrants, she is interested in examining the historical narratives of Latinx immigrants in the United States. At SUNY New Paltz, Aracely explored this interest through her undergraduate coursework in Latin American history, American history, and Black Studies. Aracely’s interest in the American immigrant experience has sparked her interest in education. She’d like to facilitate an equitable learning experience for all students, particularly those from under-resourced backgrounds. Aracely is excited at the opportunity to do just that with Blue Engine.
