Krycya Flores Rojas

Krycya is originally from San Salvador, El Salvador. She first arrived in California and then moved to NC in 2004. She has a Sociology degree with a minor in Psychology from UNC-Greensboro.  She started working with the community as an undergraduate student at UNCG through different service-learning projects and under the mentorship of one of her Sociology professors.

As an undergrad, Krycya received several awards for high academic achievement, worked in different projects with the Office of Leadership and Learning at UNCG, and was inducted into the Psychology and Sociology honor society. The experiences Krycya had as an immigrant coming to the United States, in being undergraduate student, and serving as an AmeriCorps member have helped her discover her passion for helping people.   Krycya has been working with the Center for New North Carolinians since 2009. She started as an AmeriCorps member serving at the Glen Haven Community Center and later became the Thriving at Three program assistant.  Krycya now primarily works as the Latino Coordinator for the Immigrant Health ACCESS Project, while still assisting the Thriving at Three Project as the Ages-Stages Questionnaire coordinator.  Krycya enjoys working one-on-one with her families and advocating for immigrant rights at different levels.

Krycya has participated in several trainings relevant to her field and leadership development. She recently finished the “Other Voices” diversity and leadership program with the Greensboro Chamber of Commerce. She was also recognized as a “Notable Latino of the Triad” by the Latino Community Coalition of Guilford in 2014.

Krycya finds relaxation in spending time with her loved ones and visiting new places.
