Inequalities and injustices in my community have shaped me into a passionate and empathetic community leader. I was born and raised in East Los Angeles where I witnessed how education inequity played a critical role in the life opportunity and academic success of the youth in my community.

During my first two years at Stevenson Middle School, I began losing friends, classmates
reading is accompanying with poor comprehension and poor general reading performance. Research dating back over 60 years indicates that faster readers be likely to have better comprehension over what is read and tend to be, generally, more good readers (Carver, 1990, Pinnell et al., 1995).

organization with a competitive advantage and differentiates them from the competition. Therefore an organization’s people must be viewed as assets in the same way a firm’s tangible assets such as property, fixtures and merchandise are (Dunne, Lusch, & Carver, 2011).
