She,Her, Ella | Business Analyst & Project Development

Employer: Hispanic Metropolitan Chamber

Moved Here from: San Antonio, TX on January 2021

Why did you move here?

I moved here to be closer to my family during the pandemic. It was an uncertain time and wanted to be close to my family.

What is one thing that you need/want from a community right now?

One thing I need and want is to find more people that are helping minority communities but are also minorities as well that can really and truly connect with minorities from personal experiences. It is so important that minorities help other minorities because we all know the struggles that entail with being a minority.

What kind of civic connection are you interested in making?

I am interested in making civic connections with people who work with the minority community or are looking to work with the minority community to help each other serve the minority community here in Oregon.
