It was always a dream of mine to start a program with my friends to help the community. The power of having that extra elbow to give you a nudge when you are struggling is so important, as I felt it when I was a kid. Growing up with a younger brother, I always love to help others strive to be better academically too. Looking forward to connecting with all the fellow tutors and kids!

Growing up and volunteering at Chinatown, I grew to love the community and the value of being in one. I was a kid that benefited from similar programs, eventually becoming a counselor and tutor. Not only did I learn to write curriculum, lead workshops, and tutor test prep, but I saw how important it is to provide an outlet to speak and grow. It has always been a dream of mine to start a program where I could give back to the kids who are just like me.

Having attended a Filipino Sunday school since the age of three, I've always been surrounded by a community that helped me navigate my identity, emphasized the importance of learning, and pushed me to be the best version of myself. I hope to pass on this sense of community onto younger students. Other than lending an "elbow", I'm focusing my energy into perfecting my banana bread recipe.
