AmeriCorps Member

Luisa Becerra is a current Americorps member, working beside the coordinators of Program 19 in the Boyle Heights district. She is passionate about making a positive impact in the lives of young Dreamer Scholars. For the past two months, she has been an integral part of the team. 

Luisa is a proud first-generation Latina with a degree in Communications. Her education allows her to bring a unique perspective to her role and she understands the hurdles that many Dreamer Scholars face in their pursuit of dreams. She was introduced to the “I Have a Dream” Foundation-Los Angeles (IHADLA) and leaped at the opportunity to serve. 

Luisa’s overall mission is of fostering growth and to provide unwavering support to the Dreamer Scholars. She recognizes the importance of mentorship and guidance, and wants to be the support system she wished she had as a kid. 

Let’s embark on this journey together, shaping dreams and creating a brighter future for the next generation!”
