In the latest installment of our Interview with a Bruin, Lena Y. Hines (‘99, J.D.‘02) tells us why she chose UCLA and what makes her a proud Latina Bruin. Lena grew up in Huntington Park with four older brothers and discusses experiencing the otherness of being the only Black and Mexican family in the neighborhood.  She shares insights about her journey as a young single mother in pursuit of an education, transferring to UCLA from East Los Angeles College, searching for scholarships and finding mentors, and how she now uses her platform as a Principal in EY’s National Tax Department to empower the next generation of professionals.
