I’m Roxanna Ruiz, College Counselor for the Student Success Center at Lehman Campus, where I serve students (and parents) from 6 different high schools gain college access information/assistance along with my co-college counselor and 12 Youth Leaders who provide peer counseling services. It is an amazing program of which I’m proud to belong.
Since I've been with East Side House, I've had the opportunity to see first hand the impact it has on communities in New York City. Being able to raise funds and have an additional input in the organization means so much more for the community than what it does for me. Of course, I will achieve a physical/mental personal goal, but by doing so I will not only help contribute monetary benefit but also, create awareness throughout the city, across the nation and its territories. I'm from Puerto Rico, which means a large part of my network is there, people who share my vision and mission to give back to our youth and future.
