Glenn Hernandez was born in Caracas, Venezuela. When Glenn was 5 years old, he migrated to the United States with his mom and brother, to pursue a better life. He and his family overstayed their ‘visitor visa’ and were pronounced as undocumented immigrants. The status of being an undocumented child, exposed Glenn to different intersections of issues like poverty, school-to-prison pipeline, and undocumented immigrant struggles. He decided to enroll in college after trying different career paths, eventually dedicating himself to studying Economics. While he attended college, he volunteered for different non-profit organizations, eventually developing an interest in creating change. Glenn was president of his own human rights group, as well as participating in several student groups like Dream Defenders, Students Working for Equal Rights, and several community based organizations in South Florida. Glenn hopes to continue to be a part of the growing movement to reform inefficient and unfair systems like education and economic inequality.
