My name is Vera Kwan. I am 23 years old. I proudly served as a Team Leader for the Disney Team in South Los Angeles at Normandie Avenue Elementary School for City Year Los Angeles. Everyday until June 10, 2010 since January 2009, I tutored and mentored elementary aged students. And I was the administrator of an After School Program called Starfish Corps which had 66 students. I led and coached a group of 7 young idealists who have given a year of their lives to change the world. We started our days at 7:30am and ended it when the last student was picked up from our after school program.
I was born and raised in Los Angeles, California - primarily in a little town called Pasadena. I'm sure you've heard of it. I went to private schools my whole life - Pasadena Towne and Country School for Pre-K-8th grade, Alverno High School `04 in Sierra Madre, and Loyola Marymount University `08. You may say I am privileged but I say that I'm lucky and blessed to have the family and support my whole life. I want to give to others what was given to me - a better life.
I am not like any other 23 year olds. I have experienced a lot in my lifetime both the good and the bad. However with all the things I've experienced, I still believe in my heart that life is beautiful and I want to do good. And through working with City Year, I've done so much in little time. I want to continue serving my community for the rest of my life. This is based on a true story.
