Roles and responsibilities at Latino Network:

I am a Youth Engagement Specialist at Centennial and Clear Creek Middle School. I meet with students during the week to provide academic and emotional support and any other resources they or their families need. I am also the Instructor for the Conexiones program at these sites. In Conexiones we cover a variety of topics such as Identity, Culture, Mental Health, Career and College Exploration and so much more! We really try to make Conexiones a safe and inviting community for all students.

What motivates you to do this job at Latino Network?

I love working with the youth. Growing up I never had anyone that looked like me to help, so I want to be able to be that person for students.

Interests and activities:

Spending time with my family, friends and my dog, Charlie.

Most proud achievement:

I am most of proud my family and students.
