Growing up in Brooklyn, my mom would frequently cook large amounts of food that she would give to people experiencing homelessness in our neighborhood. Through helping her, I was able to connect and nurture relationships with people who simply wanted to be heard and feel appreciated.
When I moved to Los Angeles, I was truly heartened by all the amazing services the Center provides for the LGBTQ community and I just knew someway, somehow, I had to be a part of it.
I take pleasure in working at the Center and being a part of a great Human Resources team that encourages inclusivity in the workplace. This job has helped educate me more about the community and has also allowed me to be an advocate for LGBTQ rights.
HOMETOWN: Brooklyn, NY
YEAR STARTED AT THE CENTER: 2015
