The story behind Primos Dallas...
Primos comes from my experience in navigating life as a Texicana from Pleasant Grove, and from my experience with students as an educator.
In the past few years, I’ve gained a mentor; she really pushes me and forces me to evaluate my decisions. I now look back and think what decisions I would’ve made differently as teenager had I had a mentor at a younger age.
In the past few years, I’ve also gained a mentee. Our relationship has forced me to think about how I can impact students beyond the classroom. Young people need someone that can push them, connect with them, and guide them. I want to create an opportunity for others to form authentic mentor relationships. I’ve gained so much from my experience!
