Help Nueva Esperanza and its board of directors welcome the very talented and amazing human being Cynthia Espinosa as our new program director.
Cynthia Espinosa Marrero is a scholar and activist, with the passion to help diverse communities grow and be empowered. Her passion for the community and the environment was seeded with her family and neighbors in Yabucoa, Puerto Rico where she grew up. After moving to Holyoke, Massachusetts in her teens, Cynthia participated in extracurricular activities related to environmentalism and community building. Her ultimate goal is to give opportunities to underrepresented groups to find their inner power, voice, and skills to build a socially just system. She has a Bachelor’s of Art Degree in Sustainable Food Management from UMass Amherst and a Masters of Science in Environmental Studies focusing in Environmental Education from Antioch University New England.
We are very excited for the future of our organization with Cynthia as part of it. Welcome aboard Cynthia.
