Joan Cordova

2019/2020 Public Allies Fellow in Residential Life

Joan is a recent graduate from the University of Georgia (May 2019). While at UGA, Joan mentored and tutored undocumented and underserved students from the Latinx community of Athens, Georgia. An immigrant and first-generation college student himself, Joan believes access to a high-quality education is the key to equity. Joan was born in a really tiny village in Central Mexico (Estes Park is a city compared to his hometown) and moved to Tifton, Georgia in 2010. New to the USA, and unable to speak the language, Joan turned to Art as a form of expression. He continued exploring the arts all throughout his college education and obtained a B.A in Studio Arts as well as a B. A in Romance Languages with a minor in Religion Studies upon graduation. He wishes to integrate education into his passion for the arts. Currently, he is a residential life fellow at Eagle Rock, where he hopes to learn a lot from the students while having fun. Joan is very excited to dig deep into experiential learning this year.
