I am Alejandra Lara, first generation student at Metropolitan State College of Denver.
Currently on my third semester pursuing a double major in Spanish and Social Work with a concentration in GLBTQ studies.
I volunteer, mentor, and tutor at North High School. 2960 N. Speer Blvd
Principal:Nicole Veltze Sponsoring Teacher: Jocelyn Palamino Students: 7 Unlike many students in
Auraria roaming around during break time or wasting their valuable time I enjoy volunteering with JTOH;
I feel accomplished at the end of the day because I know I am giving my time to these students who do
not have support at home. We all learn together and express ourselves openly. Through JTOH and the
Department of Chican@ Studies I have met many great people who share the same passion.
I support JTOH, a program I wish was active in my high school; I enjoy working with people and in open minded environments.
