March 19, 2018
Nicole Reyes-Palma is a proud Latina graduate from the University of Central Florida with a double major in Political Science and Latin American Studies. During her time at UCF she explored her career by attending conferences, being involved in the UCF Alumni Center as a staff assistant and signing up for a trip with the Latin American Department to Spain, Nerja and Morocco. She is a strong activist and advocate for civil rights and volunteerism.This path led her to apply for the UCF renowned program Legislative Scholars which ensured her a successful career into politics by participating and assisting two Florida House Representatives. After the completion of the program, she was recruited to assist as an intern for Florida House Representative Carlos Guillermo Smith. This experience and her knowledge of Latin American/Hispanic culture and diversity ultimately led into opportunities. Today she serves as the Outreach Coordinator for Congresswoman Stephanie Murphy, directly impacting the Hispanic population. This would not have been possible without the support and knowledge she gained through the Latin American Studies program.
