Juan Sebastian Ferrada
Juan Sebastian Ferrada is enjoying his last “real” summer before entering the Chicana andChicano Studies graduate program at UC Santa Barbara.

Currently, he joined the workforce as an event planner and is ecstatic to return to the academic life. A Chileno-Mexicano-L.A. native, Sebastian considers himself a Latina/o Pop Music connoisseur (Julieta Venegas, Paulina Rubio, Calle 13 anyone?). Sebastian resides in his hometown of Whittier, CA.
