Lana Bernardez is a freshman majoring in Economics with a minor in Political Science. Her gap year spent in Washington, D.C. solidified her desire to pursue a career in law and government. Outside of class, she interns at the Asian American Cultural Center and is a member of the Filipino Cultural Dance Troupe. She is grateful for the opportunity to participate in the Darien Civic Engagement Project because she loves kids and finds them adorable. Lana hopes to use this experience to become more involved with Eagleton and enrich her education at Rutgers.
