Ramiro A. Hernández (he/him/él) is a first-generation graduate student at the Harvard Graduate School of Education, where he is pursuing an Ed.M. in Leadership, Organizations, and Entrepreneurship.
A fronterizo from the Rio Grande Valley of South TX, much of his work has focused around immigrant communities in the United States. In the last three years, he has partnered with the Biden Transition Team to increase representation in political appointments, published an international reporting project with the Pulitzer Center that focused on deported U.S. immigrant veterans, and authored and presented a congressional policy brief that advocated for federal-state partnerships in increasing access to higher education.
His work has won awards and fellowships from the Harvard Kennedy School of Government, Cornell University’s Migration Program, the Mellon Foundation, the Lang Center for Civic and Social Responsibility, the Center for Innovation and Leadership, the Hispanic Scholarship Fund, the Swarthmore Intercultural Center, and the Point Foundation.
Outside of that, Ramiro enjoys cooking good food and listening to Celia Cruz.
