Altagracia is a native angelino, born and raised in South Central. She graduated UCLA with a degree in African American studies. Through her studies she further understood the way lack of historical self awareness can interfere with self realization. In response, she became the Director of the Afrikan Education Project at UCLA and worked to empower youth in Compton through Black history. At Community Coalition, Altagracia is devoted to empowering our SCYEA youth leaders through organizing.
Fun Fact: Altagracia is a plant mom to Aristotle, a Pothos, and Baby Bandz, a Money Tree.
