About Me:

I am a rising high school senior at Jurupa Valley High School and I am planning on majoring in Communication and Journalism. I have lived in Jurupa Valley for the past three years and I really love it.

Currently, I am working alongside others at CCAEJ on two major environmental justice initiatives. We are working to stop a proposed truck stop close to my school that would exacerbate pollution levels in the area. I am raising awareness about the health impacts of the project through writing op-eds and outreach to youth in my region.
