Zoraima Pelaez

Saying- ‘I did this, I am proud of my decisions, I am the woman I am today because of it--that’s really important for women to hear, even if they don't agree with me or wouldn't make the same choice.

Zoraima is standing up for women in Texas and their right to safe abortions. Pelaez has earned a Truman Scholarship and has a 2017 Bill Archer Fellowship under her belt. Growing up, Pelaez saw both her sisters' lives changed by teen pregnancy and has witnessed the resulting cycle of poverty. Because of this Zoraima has shared her own personal and powerful abortion story and is unstoppable as she starts the next chapter of her life and heads to whichever prestigious law school that is lucky enough to have her!
