Maria Isabel Alarcon born in Cali, Colombia, migrated with her mother to Jersey City Heights, New Jersey at the age of five. As a child, Isabel attended two Jersey City public schools: Alfred E. Zampella (“P.S. 27”) and Nicolas Copernicus (“P.S. 25”), from which she graduated elementary school. Isabel went on to attend Academy of the Sacred Heart in Hoboken, New Jersey. During that time, she worked as a coordinator fundraising money for the Jersey City Fraternal Order of Police where she learned the value of community support. In pursuit of becoming a future leader, Isabel returned to Cali, Colombia to complete a rigorous mathematics curriculum and obtained her high school diploma. Upon receipt of her diploma, Isabel returned to the United States. In 2008, Isabel enrolled in Berkeley College to pursue a International Business degree. During college, Isabel began volunteering for various organizations including: the Stupid Cancer Organization; Relay Read more for Life; Habitat for Humanity; and the Hoboken Homeless Shelter. Isabel became more active at the Paramus campus by becoming the Vice President of Programming for the Student Government Association. She coordinated events to encourage networking amongst commuter students; emphasizing the importance of social interaction. In 2012, Isabel graduated from Berkeley College with a Bachelor of Science degree in International Business. At graduation, she was awarded the Robert Maher Outstanding Student Award for New Jersey to honor her perseverance and commitment to education. Following graduation, Isabel began working as a Government Relations Associate at her Alma Mater where she assists in advocating for all students to have the freedom of choice to choose a Institution of Higher Education which will empower them to achieve long term career success. Isabel continues to work closely with legislative offices and other elected officials in order to make higher education available to all New Jersey students. Isabel continues to encourage and mentor the youth within her community to seek educational opportunities as a tool to acquire knowledge and progression. Isabel hopes to be given the opportunity to use her work experience, love of community, passion for education, and, most importantly, perseverance to serve the residents of New Jersey.
