Miguel Vivar ’24 | Student Deputy

Miguel Vivar is a first-generation Chicano born and raised in one of the most ethnically diverse places in the world, Queens, New York. His parents immigrated to the United States from Puebla, Mexico to support their families back home. Being the first person in his family to go to college, Miguel understands the importance of education and moving forward as a Latino in the country because he is not only carrying himself but his whole family as well. 

At Yale University, Miguel is pursuing a degree in Ethnicity, Race, and Migration with a certificate in Education Studies. He is the former VP of Relations for Sube: Yale’s Latinx Pre-Professional Student Association, and a mentor for Y Tu Tambien, where he guides first-generation low-income students from New York in their college application processes. Miguel is also a student coordinator for the Latin American and Iberian Studies Council and a choreographer for Yale’s Premier Latin Dance Team: Sabrosura. Upon graduation, Miguel hopes to go to law school and focus on immigration law to defend undocumented immigrants and provide them with the resources they need to obtain residency and citizenship.
