In high school I was part of Movimiento Estudiantil Chicano de Aztlan (MEChA).
Little did I know how much this after school club would influence me.
I was introduced to the work of Caesar Chavez and Delores Huerta and from here a passion was sparked. This passion took some time to nurture and develop.
Then one day I met a woman who would change my life forever. I met Billie Helean at a Sunday Fun Day event at Haynes Park. We talked for a few moments, but I walked away from that conversation feeling inspired and with the phone number for Brian Colon, who I was told likes to mentor people.
I did not realize how different my life would be after Ms. Helean.
My passion from High School was awakened and being a Democrat feeds my hunger to help and be a part of the Sandoval community.
