Myldred Hernandez-Gonzalez

Sacramento, CA

High School:
Oakmont High School

Myldred is a fourth year student from Sacramento, California studying Architecture and Latino Studies. She believes that design is only successful when community designers learn about the history and societal pressures that their neighborhoods face. Post-graduation, Myldred hopes to provide affordable housing to marginalized neighborhoods with architecture that respects their human dignity.

On campus this year, Myldred serves the Student Coalition for Immigration Advocacy (SCIA) as the President and is the Co-Director of the UndocuAlly Training Initiative. This year, she is also a senior fellow with the Office of Student Enrichment.

Over the past two years, Myldred has worked for minority-owned architecture and developer firms that create affordable housing in the DC, Maryland, and Virginia area after having spent two sessions studying policy and design in Washington DC.

Throughout her time on campus, Myldred has served as a research assistant on several projects relating to art and social injustice. After working with Dr. Tatiana Reinoza, Dr. Luis Mendez Perez, and Dr. Jason Ruiz, she hopes to use her skills to produce research-based architectural designs.

Ultimately, she hopes to inspire her two younger siblings to follow in her footsteps toward education and opportunity.
