Curriculum & Program Specialist
Lucia Lozano Robledo is a native of Bogotá, Colombia, and considers North Carolina her second home as she's been living in NC for a decade. As a former SLI scholar and 20 Under 20 recipient, Lucia is no stranger to LatinxEd familia. She attended Elon University as a William R. Kenan Scholar and majored in French and International/Global Studies, with minors in Latin American Studies and African and African American Studies. During her time at Elon University, her work in several programs and departments devoted to diversity, equity, and inclusion helped shape her passions for social justice, education equity, and the pursuit of liberation. Her undergraduate research on the political consciousness of Latinx migrants in Alamance County also expanded her interest in migrant identities, experiences, and stories. After college, her interests led her to work at Alamance Achieves as an Elon Year of Service Graduate Fellow. With all of her experiences in the field of education equity, Lucia aspires to work toward systemic change and equitable education opportunities for all families in North Carolina. She desires to be a part of the community-led change and transformation that is already happening across the state. In her free time, she enjoys doing pottery, being in book clubs, cooking, running, practicing yoga, and dancing in her living room to all kinds of music. She is excited to be joining the LatinxEd team because she deeply believes in LatinxEd's mission that honors and celebrates the identities and experiences of Latinx immigrant families in NC, while building more equitable educational systems.
