Transplanted to San Pedro from Portland Oregon due to family. Within 9 days moving into our new home on 8th & Centre, over 20 rounds of bullets were fired in our neighborhood and we had the unfortunate priviledge of being gifted with a bullet through our daughter’s bedroom window and now lodged into our wall. God watched over us so instead of letting this ‘unwanted welcome’ to one of God’s many beautiful – City of San Pedro, I felt the passion to get involved and not allow fear drive our new life chapter in San Pedro.

After speaking with many police officers (casual account and the officers who came into our home to file the shooting report), it is clear to me one of the many ways to “Be the Change I want to see is to Be a part of the Change”. I thrive on being an active advocate for the community, being an engaged servant leader for Central San Pedro. While my concern has shifted towards Crime prevention/community safety due to the recent event, I am also realistic that public health and community needs remains my priority. I had the honor to speak with Kristina Smith in which she was a wealth of knowledge and committed to CeSPNC and the people of San Pedro. I participated in the entire Agenda setting meeting on November 10th where I recognized it takes a team of dedicated stakeholders to drive positive changes. After this session, I broadcasted CeSPNC website and encourged my neighbors to participate/become involved. I wish to be a board member of this dynamic CeSPNC team.

Thank you for the consideration.

The reason I’d like to run for a board seat is that it’s a great opportunity for me as a student still at POLAHS. I also want the community to thrive and I want to be a part of it. I think I would be of great value, seeing as how I’m young and could expand the board’s audience to the people who’ll soon be adults, but have opinions on their community right now which aren’t often heard. I love hearing political discussions going back and forth. I’m interested in opening the window to the youth’s ideas on the environment.

I recently bought my first home here in Central San Pedro with my fiancé, and we fell in love with the community immediately. We already attended the soonest council meeting once we moved in, along with our community LAPD meetings to hear more about the work being done to better our neighborhoods. I am a speaker on generations and run a national nonprofit, so can bring my experience working with and across all age groups and a fresh perspective to this council. I am a hardworking Millennial in my late 20s, and want to help make our city even better.
