Miguel Anguiano Hernandez
Miguel was born and raised in Puebla, Mexico. While his parents migrated to the U.S. ahead of him, Miguel was raised by his grandma, who he considers a second mom. Miguel immigrated to the U.S. with his sister at 14 years old due to the violence and cartels in his hometown, and to reunite with their mom. He now aspires to be a resource for young immigrants in San Francisco and the wider Bay Area, inspiring them to overcome obstacles and build a better future for themselves.
Miguel’s passion for helping other undocumented youth started at Communities in Harmony Advocating for Learning and Kids (CHALK). At CHALK, he grew personally while developing soft skills that can be used in the workforce. As a DreamSF Fellow Miguel was placed at Mission Graduates, he will enhance his professional growth by focusing on recruiting after-school teachers, working in recruiting software, supporting staff with projects, and volunteering at schools. Miguel looks forward to sharing his experience as a first generation college student to the youth to to motivate them towards accomplishing their goals.
Some of Miguel's hobbies are cross country running, practicing boxing on his own, playing soccer and the guitar, and singing. What he enjoys most is talking to his grandma, going out to eat, and visiting new places in the Bay Area with his family.
