Rosie Munoz: Von Steuben Metropolitan Science Site Coordinator
I graduated from Northeastern Illinois University and received a bachelor's in biology. I currently live in the Avondale area with my family. I am a new mom to my 10-month-old son. I was raised in Chicago, in the Humboldt Park neighborhood. I grew up knowing I wanted to make a change and be a role model to other children.
