I'm involved with the Hispanic League for the sense of community it provides. Being new to the area, I found the Hispanic League to gain a sense of the language and culture that I missed after leaving my childhood home. I hope to bring my unique perspective to the Hispanic League to improve the quality of life for Hispanics/Latinos in the area that I now call home.
