"After graduating high school, I wanted to stay involved with ISLA because of the community ISLA built. I didn't want to leave something that I finally had for the first time in my life. I could see kids at ISLA going through the same thing I did, who felt different and I thought, 'wouldn't it be great to help these kids at a young age to love their culture and not have to wait so long like I did to appreciate being able to speak Spanish and be proud of my culture'."
