After attending P.S.E.O at Century College, Frankie Becerra transferred to a four-year institution in 2014. Being a DACA recipient and a first-generation college student, Frankie was misguided into believing that college was affordable. After a year and a half break from school, where he worked in management to pay off his student debt, Frankie returned to Century College.
During his year off, Frankie found his passions and pursued them, not knowing where that would lead him. He found passion in a Latinx advocacy group named “Movimiento Latino” where he knew he could make an impact. This is where the slogan “Moving as ONE to empower ALL” began. He joined student senate and championed civic engagement, which led him to LeadMN and an internship as an equity and inclusion intern.
At the 2018 Spring General Assembly, student delegates elected Frankie as the LeadMN president. He plans on using the equity and civic engagement lens he acquired during his internship in every aspect of his presidency. Currently, Frankie is attending Century College and the University of Minnesota for political science, eventually hoping for a business law degree and a master’s in business management.
