We’re proud to announce that Mariana Toledo-Hermina was a featured speaker at the 2022 Golden Door Scholars Summit at Queens University in Charlotte, NC.
Attorney Toledo-Hermina opened her firm in 2019 and practices exclusively in the area of immigration law. She is licensed in the state of North Carolina and came to immigration law after working extensively with immigrant communities in the context of health education and community organizing.
She moved to North Carolina in 2006 after graduating from the City University of New York School of Law and working as an attorney. In North Carolina, she worked with CMS for over 2 years as a Bilingual Family Advocate and a Spanish teacher in high school and middle school. She has also volunteered with Legal Services of Southern Piedmont’s Immigration Project and Red Ventures Golden Door Scholars non for profit.
Golden Door Scholars was founded in 2013 with the goal of promoting economic mobility for undocumented students. In the first year, GDS awarded 13 scholarships. Since then, 537 undocumented students have been impacted by GDS partnering with schools to cover tuition, room, and board for a four-year degree. GDS scholars also have access to mentors, internship, and job search support, along with other professional growth opportunities.
