The River Hawk Scholars Academy is thrilled to welcome to campus Alejandra Campoverdi, author of the new memoir, “First Gen.” Join us on Oct. 4 at 3 p.m. in Alumni Hall and be inspired by her journey from first-generation student to the Obama White House.

The first 100 students who register (and attend) this event will receive a free copy of the memoir! Following the talk, we will have a book signing.

Alejandra Campoverdi is a nationally recognized women’s health advocate, author, founder, producer and former White House aide to President Obama. She produced and appeared in the groundbreaking PBS documentary “Inheritance,” and founded the LATINOS & BRCA awareness initiative in partnership with Penn Medicine’s Basser Center for BRCA. Campoverdi served in the Obama administration as the first White House deputy director of Hispanic media. She holds a master’s degree in public policy from Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government and graduated cum laude from the University of Southern California.
