Susana Figueroa is a native of San Francisco, CA. She is the eldest of four children and was the first in her family to graduate from college when she received her BA in Criminology and Justice Studies, and Sociology. As the daughter of Salvadoran immigrants, she was drawn to immigrant rights and community advocacy at a very young age. During her time as an immigration paralegal in San Francisco she felt a call to Durham, NC, and obediently moved to Durham in March 2017. Upon her arrival, she was led to Duke Divinity School and is currently a first year. In her short time at Duke she has shown an interest in immigration, and Latino and Hispanic communities. She is eager to learn about Latino and Hispanic ministries, and hopes to attend Law School in the near future.
