Boards and Commissions Leadership Institute 2016
Fernanda Flores is currently working at the San Diego and Imperial Counties Labor Council as a part-time organizer. She is a senior at San Diego State University double-majoring in Social Work and Sociology. As a seven year Tae-Kwon-Do student, she has learned to engrave the five tenets, which are courtesy, integrity, perseverance, self-control and indomitable spirit. These tenets, along with her family values, have shaped her into the woman she is today. As a first- generation Mexican-American and the first in her family to attend a university, Fernanda devotes herself to education and community organizing. She is passionate about creating more transparent policy that addresses the needs of our diverse population. Therefore, she plans to pursue graduate school at SDSU and gain substantial experience and knowledge through exemplary programs such as, The Board and Commissions Leadership Institute.
