Why CIRCLE? My career, passion and drive is to give youth a voice, leadership skills and an education on issues of everyday life. From my own experiences as a Mexican male, I hope to be a leader to the future leaders of, not only the community, but the world.
Favorite book related to inclusiveness: One that really interests me is, Some Of My Best Friends Are Black, by Tanner Colby. The reason is because I love history and this book tells the transitions of America during the Civil Rights Movements and the inclusion of African Americans into society.
Personal Theme Song: My favorite era in American History is the Vietnam War era, the 60's. Music from that time was controversial and revolutionary. Every time I hear "Fortunate Son," by Creedence Clearwater Revival, I get chills and it motivates me to make a difference and fight, just like the young adults in that era fighting for rights and their country. You can say that is my theme song.
