After learning of Children First, and its mission to directly address access to essential resources, food insecurity and educational East Bakersfield has always had a special place in my heart because it is where my maternal grandparents lived throughout my childhood. In 2018, I was asked to facilitate the mural at David Nelson Pocket Park. I was excited to add art to a neighborhood that I loved, and I was introduced to the Children First Organization for the first time. Since then, I have had the opportunity to witness even more of the wonderful ways Children First benefits the community. Seeing their impact inspired me to continue my involvement. It is an honor to now serve on the board and help Children First with their meaningful mission.
