Tamara A. Pérez Cantalapiedra, Social Services & Outreach Coordinator Intern
Tami is a rising fourth year at the University of Chicago who was born and raised in San Juan, Puerto Rico. At UChicago, she has dedicated her studies to figure out the most effective way to help others by studying Philosophy, Political Science and Human Rights. She has had the opportunity to confirm her passion to work with immigrants and refugees by interning at National Immigrant Justice Center in 2018 and, currently, with World Relief Chicago. Additionally, Tami was accepted to UChicago’s Vienna: Human Rights Program last spring and was awarded a grant to continue developing her French language skills by studying in France last summer. Tami plans to apply to law school this autumn and hopes that she can start pursuing her law degree next year. Her goal is to become a human rights lawyer and continue serving underprivileged communities.
