Behind district 25
Born and raised in West Chicago, Karina has been a lifelong resident of Illinois’ 25th senate district. Raised by hard working immigrant parents, Karina was instilled, at a young age, about the importance of family, diligent work and compassion for others. Karina’s parents were small business owners within the community and working at their store gave her the opportunity to receive a first hand perspective on the hardships of being a small business owner as well as hearing the personal worries of the working class clients that shopped at the store.
