Evelyn Rojas

Brandman sociology student Evelyn Rojas is also the Ambassador of the Year for the Central Valley Hispanic Chamber of Commerce.

Evelyn Rojas, a sociology undergraduate student at Brandman University’s Modesto campus, talks about her educational journey in an article in Vision Magazine. “Reaching for the Modesto Stars” by Rochelle Marapao chronicles the Brandman student’s journey from undocumented immigrant (she was brought to the U.S. by her grandparents when she was 2 but obtained legal status with the help of an immigration lawyer in San Francisco) through being hired to work for California Assemblywoman Kristen Olsen and discovering her passion for sociology and helping the public. She plans to eventually become a school counselor.

The Central Valley Hispanic Chamber of Commerce selected Rojas as its Ambassador of the Year in January.

Back issues of Vision magazine are available online. The magazine offers inspirational stories of Latino innovators in education, business, community leadership and the arts.
