Growing up in South Pasadena and being involved in the community, I knew I wanted to improve my city. When the Metro Gold Line went into operations in South Pasadena, I saw the impact transportation can have on a city. I was able to work for the City of South Pasadena, improving the safety and experience for bicyclists and pedestrians. Now I hope to improve transportation for other cities.
