My story.

As a policy researcher, community advocate, immigrant, and writer, I am passionate about creating more inclusive and prosperous communities through public policy and community organizing.

My belief in the importance of civic engagement traces back to my Filipino roots and upbringing in East Asia, where I first lived the immigrant experience and learned about the importance of inclusion and diversity. That belief led me to my journey in San Diego, where I received my graduate and undergraduate degrees and worked as a community organizer, consulate staff member, and journalist. It was also where I wrote essays to promote civic engagement and political inclusion for various media outlets, including the San Diego Union-Tribune and Times of San Diego.

I am now based in Alameda, California, and am working as a policy advisor at the Alameda County Board of Supervisors. I work on issues related to social services, workforce development, and immigration.
