2014 Peer Educator

Hello, my name is Leslie and I am a youth from San Diego. I live in City Heights, a low income community and one of the most ethnically diverse neighborhoods of San Diego. Although City Heights has struggled with crime and violence, it has also been a place that has offered opportunities and resources to many families.

My free time is mostly spent out on the field playing soccer or volunteering in my community. I tend to meet new people often, especially at school. I enjoy meeting new people and getting to know their interests, hobbies and culture because a lot of times I find that we have common interests and can relate to each other.

I am excited to learn how to get information out to youth in a proper manner and help contribute to their decisions. I am also really interested in obtaining the ability to speak and connect to other youth about health using multimedia.
