I began working at CALM in August 2018.
At this time, I joined the newly created team as a bilingual school-based counselor based at Cleveland Elementary.
One of my best CALM experiences was when an adult at the school site said, “If I had you as a counselor when I was in elementary, I think I would have seen the world a better place”. It made me reflect on how the smallest of acts, how I interact with children and/or adults, on a day to day basis, could lead and impact someone in understanding and creating a new or hopeful perspective.
If I could do one thing to make kids’ lives better I would give them all the tools necessary to understand the value in amplifying their own voice.
CALM is such an amazing organization, it has so many programs that I think many people could benefit from, I feel extremely lucky to be a part of such a great team.
