Position: Latin American Youth Center

In 2013 I received my first New Futures Scholarship to pursue my Associate’s in Business Administration from Prince George’s Community College. In 2016, I received my second New Futures Scholarship to attend UMUC and complete my last two years in Business Administration with a Minor in Psychology.

I currently work with the Latin American Youth Center as a High School Program Manager. In my current role, I oversee programs in two high schools and three middle schools. The program provides youth with the necessary tools and resources to ensure a smooth transition into high school or college. The program provides decision making and life skills workshops. In addition, through the program students participate in post-secondary and career support in which over 100+ high school youth benefit through one-one advising and workshops.
