What issues affecting youth in SF are you passionate or do you look forward to working on at the YC?

I look forward to bringing awareness of all issues that youth face such as racial, economic & gender inequality & discussing the intersection between them. I am extremely passionate about issues that impact communities of color and the LGBTQ+ community. I've known both communities to be extremely resilient and proud and I want to be able to help empower them as much as I can. I am looking forward to being able to speak on these issues and help all marginalized communities for a better San Francisco! 

 

Fun Fact: I love dogs, books and astrology!
