Born in Tucson, raised in the City of South Tucson, where I currently reside with my husband of 26 years. Community renewal and the effect it has on youth and their education, drives me to fight for equality, diversity and inclusion. Preserving my ancestors' rich history, faith, language, and traditions, which links us as a people. Inspires me to continue the fight for equity and restoration of broken systems, which affect our community.
