What is one of your proudest leadership moments during the past year and why? Feel free to share more than one.

She’s proud that she was there when Gov. Brown announced the minimum wage legislation which was qualified with the hard work of our leaders who collected over 600,000 signatures. “Politics is just not something for politicians. Politics is for you, for me, and for anybody who wants to make their lives better for themselves, their children or the community at large.

Looking ahead to this year, what do you want to be the next step in your development as a leader? How will that step help our movement for economic and racial justice?

She talked about how individuals can affect political atmosphere or climate in their communities. She believes that change starts at the bottom. It starts with all of us. She became a leader because she’s had some challenges in her job. She continues to be a leader because she wants to remove challenges for other people. She wants to leave the world a better place than it was before she was born. She wants others to see her as just a normal human being who cares. If she can make a difference others can too.
