Meet Kimberly Estevez

National College Program Associate, New York City |

Kimberly Estevez joined YES in late 2022. She was born and raised in New York City by her parents who left the Dominican Republic to raise a family in America. Their sacrifices have always been her main motivation in whatever she does. As a young adult she was accepted into the SUNY Purchase Psychology Program through the Equal Opportunity Program. After earning her degree, Kimberly then lived abroad in South Korea for almost five years. During her time there she found her passion in education and helping her students reach their full potential. She later realized that she cared about the mental wellbeing of her students the most.

After leaving Korea she then decided to finish her Masters in Psychology with a concentration in Mental Health. It has been her goal for several years to give back to her community that has always supported her. Kimberly is determined to help whoever she can succeed in both their academic and professional lives
