Nathalie Medina (she/her/hers) is a sophomore majoring in Biology and Public Health with a Spanish minor. She is from San José, but her heart is from Chilchota, Michoacán, México. She is very close and involved with her culture which is why she loves saying that she is Michoacana with pride. Other than LSU, she is also active in Hermanas Unidas (Public Relations), Ballet Folklorico, Sigma Omega Nu, and the first-gen program at SCU, LEAD.


Tonight we’re Going Clubbing again and this time Antonio invites Maria De La Lima and Nathalie Medina to represent the Latinx Student Union! In this discussion they elaborate on the importance of inclusiveness of all Latin countries, promoting allyship within the MCC, having familias in LSU, the strong bond of concilio, maintaining engagement from LSU members in a virtual setting, fostering a safe space for people to express themselves, and highlighting the Latinx culture.
