Genesis (Genny) was raised in Tijuana, Mexico. She became a U.S. citizen through naturalization. Her family immigrated to the U.S. when she was 17 years old. She obtained a certificate in Business Office Technology at Grossmont College and is currently completing course work for an Associate’s Degree in Paralegal Studies. By growing up in a border town, Genny has been exposed to immigrant experiences throughout her life. That motivated her to pursue a career in which she can help others seek a home in the United States. She is passionate about immigrant rights and has a special interest in helping those seeking immigration benefits though Asylum, and Cancellation of Deportation. Genny is the oldest of five sisters and enjoys spending time with them. She likes going to the movies, being active and spending time with her cat named Gata.
