KIPP LA Schools Alumna
Metztli is a KIPP LA alumna and Mendez High School alumna who now attends the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA). She is determined to make a positive impact for students in higher education, especially those who have been in the foster care system and dealt with incarceration. As a former foster youth, she knows the challenges so many children and young adults face and is dedicated to being an advocate for those who may not have a voice or platform to speak on the issue. She dreams of one day becoming a political representative for her community and plans to create her own non-profit organization to provide the resources and mentorship many students seek. Metztli is currently developing her skills to do so as a Talent Acquisition Intern for Foster America, the Vice President of Lambda Theta Alpha, and the Vice President of Recruitment for the Latino Business Student Association.
