Lupita Quezada

Lupita Quezada-Orosco is a first-generation, fourth-year student at the Georgia Institute of Technology. Through her Public Policy major, Lupita continuously finds ways to engage in conversations and analyze ways to uplift her Latinx community. Her experience as a young farmworker in rural South Georgia inspired her to become a leader and advocate with a passion for social equity. The struggles her immigrant parents continuously overcome have undeniably given Lupita the motivation to break the systemic barriers and persevere in everything she desires. Lupita is committed and passionate and does not allow her adversity to limit her dreams of bridging the educational and financial gaps marginalized communities encounter.

As a Lead Navigator for the Latino Community Fund-Georgia (LCF), Lupita explores ways to uplift her Latinx community. Her role with LCF allows her to advance people’s democracy, protect and build communities, and expand economic opportunities for the Latinx community in Georgia.
