Born in Colombia, Valentina immigrated to the U.S. at the age of seven, moving around until establishing residency in Virginia in 2007. She earned a bachelor's degree from Virginia Commonwealth University and a master's degree from Boston University. Prior to joining the Office of Undergraduate Admissions, Valentina was contributing to social impact projects at the Boston University Innovation Lab. She has also worked as a legislative aid and serves on the board of the Virginia Latino Higher Education Network.
As a first-generation LatinX college student, she recognizes the importance of supporting an equitable higher education system. In undergraduate admissions she hopes her administrative work and public health experience aids in providing a pathway to students with a dream to attend college.
