Martha Zavala Perez (she/her/hers)

Coordinator, Titan Dreamers Resource Center

During her time as a graduate student at Pepperdine University, working on her concentrations of Intercultural and Organizational Communication, Martha realized that she never had a professor who looked like her, talked like her or came from her neighborhood. As a DACA recipient who found out she was undocumented at the age of 17, she truly sees education as power. She loves working with students and it is her goal to give back to her community by helping others reach their dreams.
