Biography:

Hello, my name is Xiomara Santana, but I go by Mara.  I am from Sioux City, IA and am currently as 3rd year student in the Nursing program.  I joined Herky C.A.R.E.S. because I personally witness and experience what Herky C.A.R.E.S. is all about.  They are here to listen to those who feel like they don't have a voice in their community and help inform other students about common struggles within minority communities.  I see so much passion in the Herky C.A.R.E.S. program and that's what I'm all about: helping, contributing, and bettering the community.  I am especially passionate about creating equality for all individuals, no matter the race, sex, gender expression, etc.
