Biography

Vianney Flores earned her Bachelor of Science in sociology in May 2019 from The University of Michigan in Ann Arbor. As an undergraduate, she helped conduct research on first-generation college students on campus to help the university better support that population. Flores is also featured in a book about social class called "Social Class Voices," where she shares her own experiences with socioeconomic class.

After undergrad, she started volunteering as a mentor and alumni director for Minds Matter Chicago, a nonprofit organization that empowers high school students from low-income families to achieve college readiness and success. She also worked as a student advisor for Chamberlain University for over two years, where she gained experience working with students in a higher education setting. Now, she has joined the Student Support team as an academic success coach, where she hopes to join in the efforts to support students in their journeys through higher education.

Flores' commitment to supporting underrepresented communities through college stems from her personal experience as a first-generation Latina college graduate from a low-income background. Her goal is to help make higher education equally accessible and obtainable for all.

In Flores' spare time, she enjoys reading thrillers and autobiographies, singing karaoke, attending comedy shows, and traveling with family and friends.
