Born in El Paso, TX, and proudly raised in Juarez, CHIH., Raquel Aguirre Guerra grew up surrounded by the Mexican-American culture, which sensitized her about the problems that afflict the migrant community and inspired her to prepare professionally to make a difference. Having grown up in a family of lawyers who specialized in International Trade, Raquel opted to make her path staying true to her passion for serving her community. Motivated by this, she moved to Mexico City at the age of 17 to start her career in Law.
In 2016 she completed a Graduate degree with honors in Tax Law from Universidad Nacional Autonoma de Mexico (UNAM).
In 2017 she received a Master’s degree in International and Comparative Law from Southern Methodist University (SMU) in Dallas, TX, and, afterward, she received her license to practice law in the State of Texas. Since then, she has worked for the migrant community.
During her free time, she enjoys practicing martial arts such as Muay Thai and Taekwondo. She is passionate about reading psychology and spirituality books, baking traditional Mexican bread, and musical composition.
