Brenda Hernandez Lazalde was born and raised in Ciudad Juarez, Chihuahua, Mexico. Growing up, she spent holidays and summers in the small town of La Boquilla de Conchos, Chihuahua, Mexico, with her grandmother and family. When Brenda was fifteen years old, she and her parents immigrated to the United States. She started her career in Dodge City Community College, and then attended the University of Texas at the Permian Basin where she graduated Cum Laude with a major in Political Science and a minor in Criminology. She then attended Texas Tech University School of Law from 2019-2022.
As a first-generation immigrant, she has personally experienced the hardships of navigating through the legal immigration system and witnessed the sacrifices and adversities that immigrants face in their daily lives. These experiences inspired Brenda to dedicate her career to helping people that are navigating through the complex immigration system.
In her free time, Brenda enjoys gardening, baking, and traveling with her husband and dogs.
