My mom is a nurse and has worked at the Watsonville Community Hospital for nearly 20 years.

I also took Filipinx American and Asian American history courses that opened my eyes to history that I didn’t know existed.

And as someone who grew up there, I know there aren’t a lot of examples of Filipinx American students that are going to colleges and universities.

That’s my goal in life right now, because I just love the kids of the Filipino community of Watsonville.

I felt like I belonged somewhere, and it has made me comfortable with being Filipinx American.
