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.
