Hello! My name is Odette and I am an upperclassman in Mathey College. I'm a Politics concentrator pursuing a certificate in Latin American Studies, and am interested in practicing immigration law in the future.

On campus, I am a peer mentor through the Princeton University Mentoring Program (PUMP) as well as a Peer Academic Adviser. I am involved in SPEAR, an advocacy group which aims to educate and advocate against the carceral state, and I serve as one of two Hermanita Chairs for Princeton's Latin American Student Association (PLASA). When I’m not reading for my classes, I enjoy spending time with my friends, listening to rock music, and getting matcha in downtown Princeton.

I am very excited to share my love for this community with you all, so please do not hesitate to reach out to me! I would be happy to share more on my experience coming to Princeton as a first-generation student, or answer any other questions about campus academics/life/culture.
