She/Her/Hers/Ella

I’ve been a part of the Promesa team since last Fall as a College and Career Ambassador and recently took on the role of Interim EL Coordinator. I am a recent graduate of Cal State LA with a BA in English and a minor in Chicana/o Latina/o Studies.

 

In my free time, I enjoy being outdoors and exploring new places. I am very excited to be here and to continue working with the Boyle Heights community!

He sido parte del equipo de Promesa desde el otoño pasado como embajadora universitaria y profesional y recientemente asumí el papel de coordinadora interina de EL. Soy un graduado reciente de Cal State LA con una licenciatura en inglés y una especialización en estudios chicana / o latina / o.

En mi tiempo libre, disfruto estar al aire libre y explorar nuevos lugares. ¡Estoy muy emocionado de estar aquí y seguir trabajando con la comunidad de Boyle Heights!
