Excited to introduce you all to the Her Vaga Bound Roots board of directors! These are the folks I am lucky enough to work alongside with to fight the good fight and make the dreams of aspiring VAGA's come true! Both individuals have exemplary experience working with a diverse population in nonprofit and higher educational settings that allows them to bring a genuine and refreshing perspective to the board. I am excited to have them represent Her Vaga Bound Roots and looking forward to the growth this organization will have under their guidance.
Please help me welcome them!

Jennifer Guzman is executive assistant at The Adelante Movement, a platform that empowers and trains Latinas economically and entrepreneurially through a digital community and workshops all over the country.
“I am passionate about women’s issues, specifically multicultural women’s issues. There isn’t enough representation. Her Vaga Bound Roots can make a positive impact on the lives of these women. It’s SO important to highlight 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 where Vagas come together to network, mentor and share experiences.
Edwin currently works as a Senior Resident Director at the University of California, Berkeley. He has over five years of working in higher education supporting first-generation, undocumented, international, women, queer, trans*, and students of color.
Her Vaga Bound Roots represents the dreams and aspirations every older brother has for his sisters. He strives to use his education, professional network, and privileges to better serve women of color.
Edwin would like to see this movement of educated + professional women of color reach even the most rural parts of the U.S. He also hopes to one day see a *Champions Dinner* for scholarship recipients of The Her Vaga Bound Roots non-profit organization, in order to give more women the opportunity to reach their highest potential.
