Nathaly Arias lives in Brooklyn, NY and recently graduated from the State University at Albany this past May. She received a dual major in Mathematics (B.S) and Latin American & Caribbean Studies (B.A). Nathaly hope to help youth and rising professionals in disadvantaged and under-served communities in the United States and countries in Latin America and the Caribbean.
