“College student voter turnout has increased since 2016, and this increase has been driven by students,” said Jennifer Domagal-Goldman, Executive Director, ALL IN Campus Democracy Challenge. “These students registered students to vote, served on their campus voting coalitions, spearheaded voter education efforts, advocated for campus polling locations and organized other voter engagement efforts to ensure their peers were confident and informed voters.” 

The ALL IN Campus Democracy Challenge engages more than 9 million students from more than 870 institutions in all 50 states and the District of Columbia. 

In addition to this most recent accolade, Peralta was recognized as Student of the Year during the 2022 Berkeley College Commencement ceremony, held on Friday, May 13, 2022, at Prudential Center in Newark, NJ. The Student of the Year recognition is presented annually to a graduate who has met high standards of academic excellence while overcoming personal, professional or financial obstacles. 

Peralta, a U.S. Marine Corps veteran originally from St. Louis, MO, graduated with a Master of Business Administration in Management degree. She also holds a Bachelor of Business Administration in Business Administration – Management from Berkeley College.
