Cindy Hwang grew up in Southern California and received her degree in Political Science from the University of California, Berkeley in 2015. Upon graduation, Cindy worked at several law firms in Los Angeles as a case assistant. There, she was able to gain experience in the legal field, but more importantly became involved in pro-bono work which kindled her desire to serve the underrepresented in a larger capacity.
As an immigrant, first generation college student, and daughter of a poor working class household, Cindy’s passion lies in serving vulnerable members of her community who face challenges due to their disadvantaged background. Cindy recognizes the need for revitalization in her community of South Los Angeles and is excited to serve through SLATE-Z.
In her free time Cindy likes to bike, eat nachos, and practice Tae Kwon Do.
