“Navigating education systems, I have faced the systemic inequities that widen opportunity gaps for low-income students of color. I went to public schools, where I felt devalued to the point of dropping out of high school. However, with the support of equity-minded allies, I managed to overcome challenges to become the first in my family to graduate from college. In college, my activism exponentially grew during my time as a student leader at UC Berkeley – where I led initiatives to increase access and inclusion for underrepresented students. These experiences have shaped my commitment to work in the racial and economic justice space.”

Kevin lives in the San Fernando Valley, where he trains for a hopefully impossible zombie apocalypse at his local gym and enjoys the craft beer scene in the area. He is also a storyteller who likes to write fiction in the magical realism and horror genres. He maintains close ties with his family, biological and chosen, by hosting dinners, playing board games, embarking on “resetting” trips, and engaging in healthy conflict over a range of topics.
