ImmPower is available to provide a variety of services to support educators and communities that are centered on empowering immigrant communities. It was born from a shared passion to continue empowering our communities by helping educators and leaders learn more about the immigrant experience.✨
ImmPower is comprised of three colleagues who first met at their alma mater, the University of California at Davis: Hector, Derick and Andrea.
Hector Gamero was born in Mexico and came to the United States at a young age. He was accepted to UC Davis majoring in Engineering.
Hector currently is a DACA recipient and currently uses this new privilege as an Adjunct Professor in Engineering at Sacramento City College hoping to inspire other undocumented students, and students of color, to pursue Engineering in higher education.
Andrea Gaytan possesses over twenty years of teaching, student advising and advocacy experience working with underrepresented and under-served student populations. She has taught in Japan, Mexico, and within several regions in the U.S. working primarily with Spanish-speaking, recently arrived immigrant communities. Andrea currently serves as a Dean of a community college outreach center where she maintains a holistic, student-centered approach to higher education administration, which includes prioritizing students basic needs, as well as supporting their academic and career development.
Derick Romero is a co-founder of Immpower.org. He was born in Oaxaca, Mexico and migrated to the U.S at the age of 3 years old with his family due to scarce resources. He\’s a first generation college student that identifies as a DACAmented.
Derick developed a deep passion to help and empower the undocumented/immigrant community by advocating and educating others on invaluable resources to succeed in higher education. Even with all the barriers put in front of him due to his DACAmented status, he successfully transferred from Modesto Jr. College to UC Davis for his B.A. and has attained an MBA from UC Riverside. Derick is currently an Operations Area Manager for Amazon.com.
