Andrea Maria Liberatore is originally from the small Charlotte suburb of Gastonia. As a daughter of a Peruvian immigrant, she grew up speaking Spanish in her household and feels very connected to her Latina roots. In 2012, she attended Wofford College and graduated in 2016 with a BS degree in Biology and a concentration in Medical Humanities. After graduation, she worked as an executive manager for Target and ran a store in Monroe, N.C. No longer wishing to pursue a path in retail, she left Target to begin working as a paralegal for an attorney that practices immigration law. Working as a paralegal has enabled Andrea to reach out to the growing Hispanic community of Charlotte and relate to immigrants adjusting to American life just as her own mother did. Additionally, she tutors at Sylvan Learning Center where she teaches English, Math, Science, and ACT/SAT prep. In her free time, Andrea enjoys volunteering with Hands on Charlotte, Latin dancing, and spending time with family and friends. In the future, she hopes to go to law school to become an immigration attorney.
