Jennifer Guzman, B.A
Jennifer Guzman was born and raised in the San Fernando Valley in the Greater Los Angeles area. She completed her Bachelor of Arts degree at California State University Northridge with a major in Communication Studies and a minor in Broadcast Journalism. She worked as a local news reporter for one year before finding her true passion for women empowerment, and serving her community.
Jennifer currently works as Program & Event Coordinator for The Adelante Movement, and Becoming Self Made, two virtual platforms that empower and train Latina and women of color economically and entrepreneurially through a digital community that provides training, shared stories and resources, as well as LIVE workshops all over the country.
“I am passionate about women’s issues, more specifically for women of color; there truly isn’t enough representation and it’s time to bring these hidden figures to light. I am overjoyed to work in a space where I still get to utilize my media and production muscle while recognizing that I am doing something that is greater than myself.”
She joined the Her Vaga Bound Roots Board of Directors in 2018; fueled with a passion for change, she strives to positively impact the lives of young women and echoes the importance of highlighting those that are on that path to success while simultaneously motivating and inspiring one another, so that young women have role models to look up to.
Jennifer would like to see more women of color pursuing higher education so they can obtain high level jobs, or start their own businesses in the future. She'd love for Her Vaga Bound Roots to be able to grant many of those women the financial ability to do so, and hold an annual sponsored event/conference where Vagas can come together to network, and share experiences.
