I am currently a senior at Rio Mesa High School. I've really fallen in love with the Mexican culture that I grew up surrounded by and I had an opportunity to learn more about it and even be able to help out my community which I am thankful I am able to be a part of.I am getting my experiences and learnings and using them to be a part of something much bigger.
From a young age, I have aspired to use law and politics as a means of serving my community. In learning about the adversities and treatment of immigrants, I became passionate about immigration rights and justice and utilizing my privileges to empower others and amplify unsung voices. With this opportunity, I am excited to advocate for families and learn about the complexities of the immigration system.
Currently, I am a junior at UC Berkeley studying Legal Studies and Public Policy. After, I plan to attend law school and enter a career in law and politics, continuing to serve my communities.
Hello! I am Shay Rivera Bremner, currently a Junior at Foothill Tech High School. One thing I have always found gratitude in is public service and helping my community. Before the Pandemic, I volunteered at the Swap Meet Justice in Oxnard, and loved seeing people from all walks of life come together to help others. This is when I became enthusiastic about pursuing a career in law and to be an active ally to marginalized groups. I have always been interested in civil rights law, so I’m thrilled to have this opportunity to advocate for others while also getting introduced to immigration law along the way.
Currently, I am completing my last semester as a law student at the Santa Barbara and Ventura Colleges of Law. I also work full-time at a local family law office. Once admitted to the Bar, as a first-generation Mexican-American, I wish to use my own experience and fluency in Spanish to assist Ventura County’s Spanish-speaking only community. My family has suffered through immigration tribulations; therefore, I am hopeful this opportunity at the Law Office of Vanessa Frank will broaden my experience and guide me through ways to assist our Latinx community. In my free time, I enjoy volunteering; I've recently joined a local Legal Observers group to assist with current civil rights protests. I am ecstatic to be a part of such a wonderful and community-driven group!
