I’m 6’ and growing, native to Southern California so when I am not indoors working or messing around I stroll around and enjoy what my community has to offer. Growing up in a highly Latinx based community only made me appreciate my culture and appreciate community engagement and help in anyway I can with retaining the original identity of a city rather than losing it to gentrification or a cookie cutter shopping area.
