Mayra Pelagio


Co-Leader, Latinx Affinity Group

Mayra Pelagio was born and raised in the rural side of Guanajuato, Mexico. At the age of 13 she migrated with her family to San Jose, CA. The drastic move from a rural space to a city, led Mayra to want to study something that made her feel at home. She graduated with a B.S in Environmental Science and Manager from UC Davis and is currently a graduate student at San Jose State University. As a graduate student Mayra aims to learn about the opportunities the Latinx community has to learn about wildlife and wildlife conservation in the local parks. She aims to create opportunities for the Latinx community to go outdoors and to find opportunities of employment to diversify the environmental workforce.
