Uriel was born in Mexico and immigrated to the United States with his family at the age of 3. In high school, Uriel was active in community service, especially through his Church, and participated in the first Mock Trial Program at McComb High School. Competing in the Mississippi Regional Mock Trial Competition sparked his interest in law, especially international law and international relations. His experience as an immigrant and interest in law has led to his desire to pursue a career in this field and to learn more about the way that culture and law work together to determine politics in countries. He is also very interested in working with immigrant youth, especially children, to help plant in them the seed of passion for learning and knowledge. Uriel is pursuing studies in International Relations within Political Science and Latin American Studies. He is looking forward to his experiences at Swarthmore, in and out of the classroom, that will guide him towards his goals.
