Originally from Richmond, Virginia, Rosa Waters received her Bachelor’s Degree in 2015 from the University of Virginia, where she studied Latin American Studies and Political & Social Thought.
Rosa initially became interested in immigration and working with those from around the world through her mother’s work as a middle school ESL teacher. In high school, she traveled to Honduras to study Spanish, and in college, she worked with high school ESL students and Panamanian public school teachers on exchange at UVA. Rosa’s first exposure to working in immigration law came after her first year of college, when she spent a summer interning with the Virginia Poverty Law Center’s immigration clinic for victims of domestic and sexual violence
In 2014, Rosa traveled to Brazil to study Portuguese and work as an English teacher, and after graduating, Rosa spent a year in Brazil as a University English Teaching Assistant through a Fulbright Fellowship. She has previously worked in immigration law and is very excited to be a part of a team that prioritizes social justice and seeks solutions for even the toughest cases.
