My family was displaced from their home in the Mission. While we found programs that provided assistance, I wanted to bring my new neighbors into the conversation so I co-founded a program called ‘Transformative Technology’ to bring people from both sides of gentrification to find solutions together.

I am graduating from June Jordan School for Equity and headed to UCLA. I want to become a UN ambassador or immigration lawyer.
