We are excited to bring two leaders to our team this Fall!
Jose Navarijo is a senior at California State University, Northridge majoring in communication studies. He attended Leuzinger High School in Lawndale, California and has resided there for many years. He has worked in the education field for the past four years as a tutor and as a supplemental instructor at Leuzinger High School, Belmont High School, and California State University, Dominguez Hills. His experiences with helping students from underrepresented communities coupled with the vision of The PLUS ME Project made it a true match in his mind to join the organization as an intern.
Jasmine Gibson is a senior at California State University, Dominguez Hills majoring in communications with a focus on public relations and advertising. She has always had a love for writing and helping others. The PLUS ME Project is the perfect organization for Jasmine to exercise her skills and thrive in her passion. She believes in the mission of PLUS ME and is ready to increase awareness in SoCal school districts. After graduation, she plans on becoming a substitute teacher while pursuing her master’s degree in school counseling. She hopes to have a career as a high school guidance counselor to inspire and express the importance of higher education to at risk youth and first generation college students.
Both Jose and Jasmine will support our outreach and communication initiatives throughout the Fall semester by contacting schools, writing blog posts, updating our social media accounts, and supporting the launch of two new initiatives!
