What inspires you to do this work?

My family is what inspires me to do this work. They have passed down their experiences and stories which gives me the motivation to keep making San Francisco as relatable and memorable just as they remember it.

DCYF’s tagline is “Making San Francisco a Great Place to Grow Up.” Do you believe this? Tell us why.

Yes! I believe San Francisco is a great place to grow up. There are so many experiences people can keep with them while being here in the City. There are great opportunities for everyone of all backgrounds. I believe we have the best resources for all.

Is there a song or anthem that inspires your grind and motivates you to serve our communities?
