Program & Communications Assistant
Currently a Junior at California State University, East Bay studying Human Development. Born and raised in California, currently located in Orange County territory of the Tongva (Gabrieleno) people who are the true stewards of this land. I am a first-generation college student whose parents immigrated from Honduras. I am a proud Latina woman who desires to help those in need. I have been part of the education field for the past four years which has been incredibly rewarding. I am passionate about animals, nature, photography, and the environment. Working with Youth on Root is an amazing next step in order to empower and help those who want to change environmental injustice in the BIPOC community. I wish this type of organization had existed when I was younger in order to help change environmental racism, something that affected not only myself but those around me. Now I am proud to start my journey at Youth on Root.
