Hilda Nucete grew up in Caracas, Venezuela. In 2007 she moved to Colorado due to the difficult political situation in Venezuela.
Shortly after arriving to America, Hilda became greatly interested in social justice issues. She was the “Ya es hora ciudadania” citizenship workshop Logistics and Registration Coordinator, where she helped over 1,000 Legal Permanent Residents complete their citizenship document with no cost. Hilda was also part of the first class of LIPS (Latinas Increasing Political Strength) which empowered young Latina women to become leaders of our community.
In January 2014, she went to study International Business and French at the Université Blaise Pascal in Vichy, France. She recently graduated from Colorado State University with a degree in International studies with emphasis in Latin America and Europe and a minor in French language and culture. Currently she is the Protégete Program Director for “Protégete: Our Air, Our Health,” a program of Conservation Colorado.
