Rose Quezada
Community Education Workshop Facilitator

I believe it is of the utmost importance to provide girls and women with the skills they need to navigate their environments with confidence.  In this highly competitive world, we need to encourage girls and women to support and positively challenge each other.  My goal is to help teach kindness and respect through our workshops as well as being open-minded to one another’s ideas.

I am extremely passionate about women’s rights, and the Institute has helped me to realize how significant teaching our youth is to the future.  With my continued studies in psychology, I have learned how the events experienced at a young age influence one later in life.  I strongly advocate for the empowerment of women and in teaching girls from a young age what it means to be confident in their beliefs.  I identify with these girls and the issues they face because of the memories I have when I was in their shoes.

Education:

• Pursing B.S. in Psychological & Brain Sciences, University of California, Santa Barbara (expected graduation date: 2020)

 

Other Experience:

 My past volunteer work at AYSO Region 13 has given me the opportunity to both coach and work with girls on their soccer skills and on their self-confidence. My love for working with kids has led me to where I am today.

 

Mission:  My aim is to motivate girls to be advocates for themselves and one another and to stand up for the way they should be treated.  This generation of girls should be fully aware of the respect they deserve and should have the skills to communicate effectively and achieve their goals.
