I work with a community development organization, coordinating a network of basic needs service providers in the southwest side of Chicago. Our members include food pantries, soup kitchens, shelters, public health clinics, churches, and other community-based social service agencies.
My interests around community development focus on creating sustainable urban food systems, increasing access to health and nutrition, and community-engaged, participatory planning.
I am from Puerto Rico, "boricua" through and through. Speak fluent Spanish and English.
I like traveling and meeting new people - rather get the local perspective than hang around all the tourism.
I keep an active lifestyle - yoga, hooping, soccer. Love the outdoors, nature, and wildlife.
Enjoy art and culture - diversity of music...
Calm disposition, fun-loving, respectful and honest.
