Originally from West Orange, N.J., Esther graduated with honors from Boston University with a degree in health science and a minor in sociology. As the daughter of immigrants, she has been motivated to volunteer and intern with organizations that serve immigrant and marginalized communities. Her passion for social justice and serving vulnerable communities solidified through her position as a Health Leads’ Patient Advocate at Boston Medical Center, in which she connected low-income and minority families to essential community-based resources. Along with her education, Esther’s personal and professional experiences have fueled her eagerness to work towards breaking barriers and building spaces to empower underserved communities.
