Region: Greater Los Angeles
Rosa Maldonado is a binational Latina born and raised in Los Angeles, CA. As an Ethnic Studies major, she conducted interdisciplinary research on heath disparities that was largely inspired by her experiences living in between the boundaries of the Koreatown/ MacArthur Park neighborhoods in Los Angeles. She is serving as a CivicSpark Fellow for the Compton Community College District, assisting with addressing housing insecurity for California’s Community College students. She hopes that this fellowship will continue to build and strengthen her communication, project management and data collection skills for graduate school and can open doors to employment opportunities in local government by addressing community resilient issues.
