My name is Jonathan Frias and I graduated from UC Santa Barbara in 2014 with B.A. in Political Science and Chicano/a Studies with a Minor in Education. I currently work for Palmdale School District as a Parent/Community Liaison and also work as a Lead Associate for PT Gaming, LLC. I am in the process of getting my credentials so that I may begin teaching History at a Jr. High or High School Level. While at UC Santa Barbara I was involved in different activities from intramurals to dancing Folklorico but none of those activities had a bigger impact than Hermanos Unidos. Hermanos Unidos was the perfect organization for me, giving me an opportunity to meet other guys who came from similar backgrounds and more importantly wanted to succeed academically while giving back to the community and being socially active. As an alumni I continue to hold strong healthy relationships with those I call my Hermanos and we support ourselves personally, academically, and professionally. I hope to share my experiences so that you may not commit the same mistakes I did, build on the areas where I succeeded and explore uncharted territories that were unavailable to me.
National Board Liaison
My name is Luis Ramos, I am currently the University of California, Santa Barbara Liaison and the Director of Alumni Association. I am originally from Reseda, CA, in the San Fernando Valley. I graduated from the University of California, Santa Barbara as a Chicano Studies and Global Studies double major and Education and Spanish double minor, Class of 13. In addition, I graduated with my Masters in Education from University of California, Santa Barbara, class of 17. I am currently a History Teacher in the Santa Barbara Unified School District. Hermanos Unidos has given me so much to me both as an undergraduate and graduate student. HU allowed me to pursue leadership roles and gave me a home away from home. As the UCSB Liaison and Alum, HU allowed me to participate and be able to become a resource to our members. I hope you all get to fully experience Hermanos Unidos and learn what it means to part of this organization.
