Why have you decided to serve as a Trailblazer for the JLSA?

I’ve always been a huge advocate for mental health awareness. As a JLSA member I’ve seen the positive impact through collaboration with the Clarity Child Guidance Center which helps promote children’s mental wellness. Therefore, I decided to serve as a Trailblazer because it is time to break the stigma surrounding mental health issues. As a mother I know the importance and significance of mental wellness within children. I want to ensure that our future generations have the capacity to lead healthy lives.

Who and/or what inspires you to pave a path in our community (be a community leader/participant)?

Growing up on the Westside of San Antonio I grew up in poverty, encountered acts of violence, the impact of drugs in my community, as well as a growing surge in homelessness. Growing up in a Latinx household I saw my mother and father work two jobs and seeing them having to work hard for their money. My mother is someone who inspires me she was selfless in her actions and often scarified her free time to ensure we grasped the severity and importance of being a force for positive change in our community.
