Hi! My name is Christina Pham and I am a second-year student at De Anza College. I am excited to be the outreach coordinator this year and and spread the word about HEFAS to organization both on and off campus! Being a child of immigrant parents has fueled my interests in immigration and I am passionate about racial and gender justice as an Asian-American woman. Additionally, when I’m free, I love doing art, specifically digital illustrations, painting, and photography!

Hi! My name is Veronica Cortez Dubon. I’m the office coordinator of HEFAS. This is my first year at De Anza and I’m majoring in Biological Science. I’m planning to go into Dentistry for graduate school and later on specialized in oral surgery. I love to read (fiction & non-fiction) and also, I enjoy creative writing. I decided to join HEFAS team after realizing how big of impact this program has on many students on campus and their familias. Being part of HEFAS team has help me to grow my leadership skills and be more engage to the community I’m part of as an AB540 student myself.

It brings me joy, commitment and I love to meet new people with different realities to share and learn. In a way to contribute to an equal, respectful, and loving society.

My name is Daisy Rodriguez and am a first year here at De Anza. I am the Membership coordinator for HEFAS and one fun fact about myself it that I am looking into a career in the medical field. I looked into being part of the HEFAS team so I can help with welcoming undocumented students who are fearful or worried they won't be able to go to college for further education and assure them that there are various resources that can help them through college.
