Pamely Gomez was born and raised in Yonkers, NY, in a Dominican household filled with love, laughter, and many lessons to learn and grow from. In the summer of 2013, just before entering her senior year of high school, she partnered up with a nonprofit organization, Yonkers Partners in Education, and started a mentorship program for Hispanic students called “Latinos Unidos por la Educación.” Through this program she was able to partner up with early-career college students, libraries, and community events to properly inform students and parents about the benefits of obtaining a higher education. Her first two years in college were at Lehman College, where she double majored in Mathematics and Economics and minored in Business. There she was the recipient of the 100 Hispanic Women National Scholarship, where she was elected to be the representative of the scholarship for donors and funders. She was also the recipient of the Latino Trendsetter Award in 2016, for leading the way in her community by creating a mentorship program to promote the benefits of higher education.
Pamely graduated from Cornell University with a degree in Industrial and Labor Relations. At Cornell, she focused on policies and regulations affecting the human capital and the importance of diversity, inclusion, and belonging. Due to her efforts at Cornell, she was elected to be an Ambassador to represent Cornell at the Hispanic Association of Colleges and Universities, to carry out the same efforts. Additionally, she loves photography, modeling, and singing. Pamely has modeled for NYFW, BKFW, and has performed in music videos and radio shows. Today she is working in the human resources field in hopes of fulfilling her career aspiration to become a Chief Diversity and Inclusion Officer in a STEM related field.
