What is your favorite part about working/volunteering at Advancing Justice-LA?
I feel very joyful that I can support Advancing Justice-LA with on-going administrative needs.

Share one favorite memory from your time working/volunteering at Advancing Justice-LA?
Organize and find a home for boxes and boxes of files. I love organizing.

What are a few of your hopes for the office?
To continue helping in areas that are under-staffed and doing my part to help others do their jobs well.

What’s one social justice/civil rights issue that’s important to you, and why?
Learning how to navigate administrative bureaucracy, government or health benefits and educating others to do the same. I have spent so many hours at DMV, social security office, and hospitals that it can be frustrating to figure out how to get information and resolve issues. Everyone has a right to access services that they pay for and invest in.

Who is your hero/who is someone that inspires you?
God is my hero. His words, songs of praise and their lyrics inspire me so.
