Board of Directors
Alexandra Escobar - Co-President
I am excited and honored to be among visionaries who share a similar mindset as I do so that I may continue learning and challenging myself. As a first-generation college student and an immigrant, I feel very strongly about youth empowerment. I want to be a voice for those who cannot speak for themselves, domestically and internationally. California sets itself apart from many states in the USA, for the sole reason that we are dreamers. The ability to dream larger than life will pave the way for the distinctive political, economic, social, and cultural change.
