Director of California policy and programs, SEARAC

The calling to serve the people found me at a young age when I was downright angry about the injustices in and outside of my house. I am even more emboldened today to continue the work of social justice and equity for the community, my family, and the younger version of me. I'm just a little bit more kind, nimble, and wise.

Sweet or savory?: I love both, but if I must choose - savory
