I am a Mexican-American and never knew that our community lacks so much help. Through the forums LEJO offers I have gotten the knowledge I need to fit into the Hispanic community. Through their service and friendship that come along with time I have become a staff member and volunteer when funds are not available. LEJO has also helped me out of a depressing and have convinced me to return to college. I start college next year to become a Social Worker.
