Hugo Myron ’20, from Daly City, California, is a politics concentrator pursuing dual certificates in American Studies and in Latino Studies. As the Class of 2019 Tom A. and Andrea E. Bernstein ’80 Scholar, his interests lie in the intersection between educational disparities, race, and the government’s role in facilitating educational equality, as well as in the criminal justice system and representation for underrepresented minority communities. Myron’s activities on and off campus and his class work have increased his passion for making sure that all communities have fair and equal access to education. On campus, Myron has focused his coursework on American politics, public policy, inequality, and race. He is a committee member of the Association of Latinx Activism and Service and the Princeton DREAM Team, which primarily focus on educational and health initiatives for minority community members in Princeton and beyond. He also works with the Princeton Office of Disability Services as a thesis reader and research assistant and with Princeton TigerCall. He is a member of the American Studies Student Advisory Council.
In summer 2019, Hugo interned at the Education Department in the Office of Civil Rights (OCR).
