Oswaldo camarena

Program Director

My name is Oswaldo Camarena and I am proud to serve as the Upward Bound Program Director since 2019. My educational background stems from the University of Washington, where I studied Political Economy. I have lived in Vancouver, WA since I was 6 years of age. I am proud to have graduated with Honors from Fort Vancouver High School, Center for International Studies. I believe a huge part of my development as a professional comes from my exposure to culture. Growing up in Jalisco, MEX until 2001, staying engaged in the local community, and studying abroad in Leon, SPAIN (2015) has provided me with rich experiences and diverse perspectives. I am currently the Varsity soccer goalkeeper coach at Evergreen High School and am involved in the community through LULAC Council #47013
