Carolina Mendoza Huerta is a RISE AmeriCorps member from Storm Lake. She is serving her RISE term with the nonprofit organization Bridge of Storm Lake.
Carolina recently graduated from Buena Vista University with a Bachelor of Arts in Business and a focus in Human Resource Management.
She migrated to the United States with her family from Mexico at a young age. Because of this experience and the COVID-19 pandemic, Carolina is aware of the lack of resources for her community in their native language. She joined La Línea de Ayuda to help others that don’t speak English to assist them with resources or important information. Carolina is a frontline navigator and hopes to learn how to better advocate for her community.
