Community Resource & Wellness Advocate
I have been working at FBU for about a year & a half and have been a youth at FBU for 3 years prior to becoming staff. I am dedicated to creating a safer space for youth & families to feel valued, heard and especially respected. My interest in being a Community Wellness & Resource Advocate stems from my lived experience. Growing up as a low-income Mexicana, I face many injustices, lack of resources and disrespect from people that were supposed to help me & my family. Being a part of FBU has allowed me to ensure that no youth or family has to fight for resources and respect on their own.
