Isa is a Bay Area native, with a passion for education, social justice, and serving the community that raised her! She graduated with a BA in Political Science and Master’s in Public Policy from Cal Poly – San Luis Obispo. As a first-generation college graduate, she credits her successes to the love, care, and mentorship provided by her community. She has dedicated her career to using education, policy, and social resource allocation to advocate for communities of color.
She is grateful to work with students and instructors at StreetCode to build students’ confidence, promote self-actualization, and encourage innovators to lead with empathy and compassion for others.
Fun Facts: Isa loves a good joke! In both middle school and high school, she was voted most contagious laugh. She loves traveling, sharing stories, trying out recipes from different cultures, scuba diving, and hanging out with her 2 sisters (she’s the middle child!)
