27 years old, San Franciscan Resident
I am a 27 year-old San Francisco native with roots in Guanajuato, Mexico. I became a teen mother at 19 years old and upon my daughter’s birth, my interest in sewing grew. A counselor at Horizons Unlimited linked me up with Turning Heads to explore economic empowerment through Sweet Dreams. My favorite job at Sweet Dreams was hand and machine sewing the lavender eye pillows. I am currently a Case Manager who works with teen parents to graduate from Hill Top high school. Thanks to Turning Heads in providing a sewing program for teen moms, I now support my community by referring many interested young women to the sewing program.
