New Brunswick, New Jersey ■ St. Louis University
¡Hola! My name is Sonya Kumpuckal and I was born in New Brunswick, New Jersey but grew up in Illinois. I just graduated from Saint Louis University with a degree in Public Health and a minor in Spanish. My passion for immigration first sparked two years ago on an immersion trip to the borderlands where I was able to gain multiple perspectives surrounding the issue. One of the many stops on that trip was the BSC Las Cruces house and I am excited to return for the year of service. I hope to gain some firsthand insight into the complexity of immigration and immerse myself fully into the different culture.
