Yoger Aguilar

University of Wisconsin - Parkside

Yoger Aguilar, an international student from Caracas, Venezuela in his junior year at UW-Parkside, is one of our most active and best-known student leaders. During his time on campus, Yoger has focused much of his efforts on promoting inclusiveness amongst the student body. As a member and now current Vice President of the student organization, Latinos Unidos, Yoger has worked with his peers to create awareness and help educate the campus community on cultural traditions and values. Through his position as a Senator for Parkside Student Government, he has educated others about the many issues facing undocumented college students. Additionally, he has collaborated with faculty members and community agencies such as the local chapter of the League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC) to protect the rights of Hispanic individuals and encourage the pursuit of higher education within the local Hispanic community. Beyond his work on campus, Yoger has supported a number of causes and organizations in our community including Warrior Dash 2016, Make a Difference Day, Relay for Life, Feed My Starving Children, and the Frank Neighborhood Project. He is currently working on a project to provide financial help for DACA recipients.

Personal Statement

My leadership pathway started back home in Caracas, Venezuela when for the first time I got to lead a team. I became the captain of my soccer team and I assumed the responsibility to lead our group to the championship, this team that eventually was becoming my family. My first community experience and volunteer opportunity to benefit my community was in a small hospital in my hometown. There I worked as a physical therapy assistant and I donated my services and time for two consecutive years to my community.

Once I arrived to campus, I wanted to continue getting engaged and involved with our students and our staff with the purpose to spread positive values and continue creating awareness and educating our community about culture and ethnicity. I would like to thank my mentor, Andre Bright, our former student government president, Jessica Diaz, and most importantly my right hand and life partner, my girlfriend Crystal Garcia for helping me and always keeping me motivated and accountable to continue giving my best to our community and our students. I am highly inspiring, positive, and ready to work on my next project to benefit our DACA recipients financially.
