Aidé Arana was born in Guadalajara, Jalisco on August 26th, 1988. Aidé was passionate about creating opportunities for her family and others; she was firm in her belief for justice. Aidé was kind and fierce; she did not have to choose one over the other. She was selfless; even in hard times, she put the needs of her family and loved ones first. She achieved many of her dreams, including graduating from the University of California, Riverside with a major in Sociology in 2017 and working to advance immigrant rights with the Inland Coalition for Immigrant Justice (ICIJ). Everything she achieved was always with the motivation of lifting up and honoring her family. We learned so much from Aidé. She was wise beyond her years and shared with us the lessons she learned from a well-lived, although too brief, life. She taught us to stand up for what we believe in, dream big, be courageous in the face of struggle, help others in need, and enjoy life to the fullest. Most of all, she taught us to be kind to one another. Aidé loved her family and friends so much; she always saw the best in those around her and was a loving, supportive, and loyal daughter, sister, partner, and friend. We honor Aidé by spreading her kindness and love to others.
