Jesus Guerrero loves both technology and giving back to the community. They graduated from San Jose State University in 2020 with a B.A. in Chicana and Chicano Studies and a minor in Computer Science. Jesus moved around a lot growing up, after being born in Modesto CA, then moving to Idaho, to Ontario (California, not Canada), to Pomona, to Stockton, and finally to San Jose. In the many cities Jesus lived in, they noticed differences in how school demographics and resources went hand-in-hand. The biggest difference between schools with a majority white population and schools with a majority Latinx population is the technology available. Now, they are working to bring access to technology to the community and teaching how to use it to its full potential.
Jesus has been to 3 different elementary schools, 1 middle school, and 2 high schools. They can play about 5 different instruments (trumpet, trombone, baritone, tuba, and french horn). They once helped put flowers on a Rose Parade float. They’re part of the first graduating class in Chicana Chicano Studies at SJSU for the undergraduate program. Their favorite board game is Monopoly (they’re also very competitive).
