Resourse Development & Communications Specialist VISTA
Phone: (626) 449-0839 ext. 114
Elynn was raised in Echo Park until she was 14 years old. She moved to Alhambra and noted the socioeconomic inequalities between the two neighborhoods. Being raised by an immigrant single mother, Elynn realized how hard her mother had to work to try to achieve the American Dream. This pushed Elynn to work hard and try to graduate early. Elynn graduated from California State University, Los Angeles with a BA in English in 2015, because she believed strong oral and written communication is an especially important skill to develop. After working with the El Monte School District as an AVID tutor, Elynn decided to pursue a career in public service. Beginning in 2017, she worked with a non-profit as a job coach for two years. Wanting to broaden her skill set, Elynn then joined AmeriCorps as a VISTA to work with Flintridge Center as a Resource Development & Communications Specialist.
