Biography:

I am trans/non-binary and use he/him/his pronouns. I am the oldest of five children from a low-income family and I was first in my family to graduate with a bachelor’s degree and master’s degree. I am passionate about assisting and helping low-income and lgbtqia+ students at Green River College and participate in bringing speakers/events to campus and volunteering when I can. I love getting to work with students 1:1 and help them discover their educational/career pathways.
