Paul was born and raised in South LA and earned his B.A. in Psychology at Pomona College. At Pomona, Paul learned that Ethnic Studies courses were made possible because students that came before him protested and demanded that their history be taught in school. This taught Paul that education and organizing go hand-in-hand and now he works with youth to empower students to develop as both leaders and scholars.
Fun Fact: Paul studied abroad in Cape Town, South Africa while attending college.
