How would you describe All Peoples Community Center: All Peoples is more than just a community center it is a second home to everyone.
Favorite Part of Your Job: Being able to share the knowledge that I’ve gained as a first generation college student with the youth and their parents (e.g. filling out CSU/UC apps, FAFSA/ CA Dream Act, writing prompts, financial literacy, etc.).
My best All Peoples story: We had taken a group of students and parents to LATTC’s Cash for College Event. They all had the chance to attend various workshops and got their questions answered. Towards the end, there was a raffle for a scholarship. 10 student attendees had the chance to win. They had just announced the 10th winner and unfortunately none of our students were called. Both the parents and students wanted to leave but I kept insisting, “wait… just give it a few more secs… just wait.” They called the student for the 3rd time and no show. One of the hosts pulled out another ticket and bamm… one of our students from All Peoples was the 10th winner of the scholarship.
Hobbies: I like to play soccer, draw every now and then, write music, and stay involved in my community.
