"Fighting for just-peace"
I am the Community Operations Director at the Community Development YMCA of Long Beach. I am the World YMCA United Nations Advocacy Ambassador from the U.S YMCA movement. At the Y, I provide leadership to create framework and programs through the YMCA New American Welcome Center to meet the needs of immigrant youth and refugee families through direct immigration, social and mental health services, peace and bridge-building strategies. In 2008 at the age of 19, I started my YMCA career at the Cambodia Y as a founding staff where I worked with street children and youth in the slum communities.
