About Me
My duty to my family and community is what brought me to Jordan. Being half-Jordanian, and half-Mexican, understanding my Jordanian heritage is of utmost importance. Learning about the community I live in and giving back to it is what drives me internally. A sense of justice, equality and individual worth is what drove me to run for Mayor of Pomona back in 2008. My platform consisted of many ideas, but the one plank that was closest to my heart was centered around the idea that we could raise Pomona’s underachieving graduation rate. I proposed to create a program to link our universities to our high school and our high schools to our elementary schools by a sort of mentoring/tutoring program. Students who participated and volunteered their time would receive credit from their institutions for mentoring and tutoring the youth. Although I did not receive enough votes to win the election, I was touched by the number of people that I encouraged to become involved in process of selecting a leader. Many high school kids volunteered in my campaign and learned what it meant to be of service to the local community and to understand their impact on the wider global community. Developing well rounded responsible world citizens is crucial to all of our futures because our future rests on the shoulders of the well rounded student.

Fun Facts...

Briefly describe your personality ...

Getting to know someone's personality can be a wonderful experience. In many ways, my personality is like that of several people whom you've already enjoyed in your life. What's it like to suddenly discover that someone you're getting to know for the first time is very much like you. Where you find yourself sharing the same values and emotions that make it feel as if you've known each other for the longest time already. As you find yourself fascinated by them, and comfortable being around them because they seem so much like you. That's my personality.

If you could change anything about yourself, what would it be?

The concept of change itself is interesting. Can you remember judging someone prematurely … at first  thinking they weren't your type only to just as quickly realize how wonderful they really are now. Where you learned that the search for what really makes you happy extends far beyond your initial perceptions. As you begin to realize this, you know there's no need to change, because I am who I need to be, to be he

What kind of person would you like to work with…

Such deceivingly simple questions can be so difficult to answer. Have you ever spent time with someone whom you shared an instantaneous connection with ... where you can remember that connection feeling so strong, as if it seemed predestined, Where you suddenly realize how much that person really understands you, in a way which you always wanted to be understood, As you begin to sense your comfort building, you notice how you feel that powerful connection that comes from two people who were meant to share time together. A connection like that takes someone special, I can remember feeling that on those rare and special moments when you know you've met your own special me..
