Weakness

Marzapan lattes, tacos al pastor, a good sunset, and authentic conversations

Proudest Moment

Being the first in my family to graduate from college and having my loved ones present on this very special day

Why are you passionate about working at Ed Trust?

The Education Trust affirms my existence as the proud daughter of two Mexican immigrants and proud product of a college access program. It has provided me the opportunity to unapologetically advocate for students from my shared background.
