I See You as My Sister: Explaining the Inclusivity of the NODAPL Native American Social Movement
Mentor: Sarah Romano, PhD, Political Science and International Affairs


My name is Diana M. Fortunato. I was born in Chihuahua, Mexico, and I moved to the United States at the age of 13. I am a nontraditional student that went back to college 13 years after graduating high school. I am currently working on a double major in Political Science and International Affairs with an emphasis in Latin America and a minor in History.  My academic goals are to go to law school and become an attorney in Criminal Law and International Law, and to also get a PhD in History in the future.  My interests are mainly on social movements and social issues that affect our society today.  A social problem that I have been doing a lot of research on is sex trafficking and prostitution and have even presented my work to different audiences.
