“I first got involved with LA’s BEST when I attended Hillside Elementary in Lincoln Heights in the third and fourth grades. The program truly served as the blueprint that laid the foundation to my career as a writer. In just two years I benefited incredibly, and now I want to do my part so that these programs not only survive, but thrive and continue shaping young, bright minds.”
