Biography: 
I like to work as a community advocate at ICHS because the things I do daily are close to my heart. I can help the community and new immigrant families with their first steps in a new place. I’ve been there and done that, and I know how difficult it can be as a new immigrant. I want to work with families to help them through the process of growing healthy and happy in their new country.
