“No estudio para saber mas si no para ignorar menos”

As the Manager of Development, she supports the executive team and the VP of Development and administration in achieving fundraising goals, maintaining knowledge of grants, writing and developing grant proposals, and serving as a contact between the organization and funders.

Raquel’s passion for education comes from her own experience as the first in her family to earn a degree and her journey in higher education. Before the Campaign, Raquel worked at Los Angeles Southwest Community College as a Career Guidance Counselor Assistant. She mentored high school students and assisted them with college applications and scholarships.  During her undergraduate career, she also worked for the Los Angeles Writing Project as a teacher’s assistant. She was tasked with creating lesson plans and supporting teachers and students during class hours.
