My name is Juanita Alvarez-Maldonado. I was born and raised in Watsonville, CA, but made the move for an adventure to the East Coast for college. I attended Wesleyan University where I majored in Pure Mathematics and Hispanic Literature and Cultures. After graduating I began my career at BlackRock where I was introduced to Summer Search by a colleague. I stayed connected with her and with the team until I decided to become a part of it – couldn’t have made a better choice!
