Terio Ruiz

A graduate of John C. Fremont High School, Terio was born and raised in South LA. His volunteer work at Loyola Marymount University with food service workers ignited his passion to organize. After graduating with a B.A. in Screenwriting in 2013, Terio remains eager to help others learn how to tell their story in order to empower South LA residents to combat the socio-economic conditions that plague their neighborhoods.

Fun Fact: Terio is extremely difficult to defeat in a classic PlayStation 2 game that he made famous called “Smackdown Here Comes the Pain.”
