I want to introduce LRT’s summer intern, Gloria Arroyo. Gloria will be with us this summer as part of the University of La Verne’s Summer Service Program. She will be working on immigration, environmental justice, and social media content.
Here is more about Gloria (Gigi):
Hi! My name is Gloria Arroyo and I am a senior at the University of La Verne, studying English. I am from Ontario, California and I am excited to be working at the Latino and Latina Roundtable this summer as part of the University’s Summer Service. Summer Service is a program that invites students to connect to the wider community through service that sparks personal, spiritual and career growth.
I decided to spend this summer at the Latino and Latina Roundtable because I see this organization actively advocating for social movements that help build a healthy community. I want to get involved in the efficient use of resources and social mobility directing the latinx community towards positive experiences.
I am eager to continue learning more about the organization and to use my experience to be a part of the strengthening of my community.
