Rosaura went to high school in Mendham, NJ where she graduated June 2017. She is currently an undergraduate student at American University in Washington DC majoring in Law & Society with a minor in Sustainability Management. In her Fall 2019 semester, Rosaura studied abroad at the prestigious University of Edinburgh where she took courses in Scots Law, International Law, and Professional Skills in Ecological & Environmental Sciences. She is set to graduate from AU in May 2021 and plans to go to law school in the near future.
Rosaura is a member of the School of Public Affairs Leadership Program where in the 2017-2018 academic year, she focused on the issue of Environment and Sustainability for a group social action project. That project succeeded in teaching low-income DC public school children the values of recycling and how to decrease their carbon footprint. In the 2018-2019 academic year, she focused her efforts on a solution to minimize gun related violence in the wake of the Parkland school shooting which had directly affected her family. She came to the conclusion that the best way for her to make an impact in her community was to bring a chapter of March for Our Lives to campus. She is a founding member of March for Our Lives at American University where she holds the Diversity & Inclusion Executive Board Chair position. Rosaura began the diversity and inclusion program at the AU chapter before introducing it to all the DC area March for Our Lives chapters (GW, Georgetown, Howard, and Woodrow Wilson High School). She is currently the Public Relations Manager for March for Our Lives DC – which includes all the DC area chapters – and continues to advocate for common sense gun reform and gun violence prevention legislation.
She currently contributes to a national legal website for undergraduate law students where she authors objective legal journalism on current issues in the law. She has written articles on the NRA lawsuit, police use of force, and EPA regulatory authority under the Trump Administration. You can read her work here.
