Fernanda Banda

New Mexico Dream Team Advocacy Lead

Fernanda Banda Coronado from Cuauhtémoc, Chihuahua Mexico immigrated to Albuquerque, New Mexico at the age of one alongside her mother and her older sister. The unfortunate deportation of her father in 2011 was what she likes to claim an “origin awakening,” as she began to recognize that her life circumstances were different. Fernanda is undocumented and because of her residency status she perceived the world fearfully from a young age but soon became knowledgeable of her roots through literature and friendships. This compelled an appreciation of identity, liberation and a passion for social justice. Currently she is delighted to be part of the NMDT advocacy team where she hopes to grow professionally and humanly, surrounded by people that gift her with a sense of home.
