Joaquim Pereira* (he/him) was born in Brazil and immigrated to a small town in the Pittsburgh area when he was in seventh grade. Now he’s a rising senior studying political science with minors in history and Spanish. Growing up seeing first hand how his immigrant family was treated differently, often having their labor rights violated, inspired Joaquim to attend law school and become a workers’ rights attorney.
