JFRC alumna serves as leader, teacher

Kimberly Ocampo, Spanish and secondary education major, Class of 2019, JFRC Spring '16

Kimberly Ocampo visited Loyola University Chicago as an eighth grader during an open house and knew instantly that it would be her home away from home.  She felt welcomed by the Jesuit mission and inspired by its dedication to social justice—values she had been introduced to as a student at Cristo Rey Jesuit High School.

Now in her junior year, Kimberly is studying to become a teacher while translating and transcribing Spanish language interviews at the Center for Urban Research and Learning. During her time at Loyola, Kimberly also studied at the John Felice Rome Center and serves as a leader at Ecclesia through Campus Ministry. “I cannot imagine a better place to further my personal growth and my faith than Loyola University Chicago,” she said.
