Why public education?
I believe that public education is basic right that every citizen of the world should receive. I think that with an education a person can achieve anything. Having an education does not only benefit the person, but also a community as whole. I believe that a good quality public education is a must for everyone to be better members of society. That is why public education is important to me.
How I GO?
After spending 15 years in the restaurant industry and seeing how many young people are not ready for the work force, my passion to help others and give back to my community brought me here to GO Public Schools Fresno.
What are your vices?
I enjoy watching and playing soccer. I, also, enjoy cooking although I am not good at it. Spending time with my family.
