Tamara Marquez migrated from Mexico at the age of 13. She is a 4th year Media and Culture Studies Major and Spanish Major at UC Riverside. She is passionate about volunteering and being part of organizations that give back to the community, specifically to the undocumented community as she can relate to their struggle.
Tamara’s internships and current work experiences have encouraged her to pursue a career in the marketing industry or communications. After graduating she wants to work at a non-profit that helps the Inland Empire community.
