Hello, I’m Iraida Santillan. I have lived all over Richmond my whole life and am currently living in Iron Triangle. I am also, a junior at Middle College High School. After graduation I want to go to four year university and double major in sociology and English, have a minor in psychology, and then go to law school and hopefully become one of the best district attorneys. I enjoy helping others and love volunteering my free time at St. Vicente de Paul and House of Hope in St. Mark’s church. It gives a sort of meaning to my life to help others. Now, fun facts! I love the color pink and I am a total girly girl. I love my fashion but I also enjoy working out. For the last year my favorite workout routine is boxing at Richmond Police Activities League (RPAL). I also enjoy going hiking it relaxes me especially when I am stressing.
My name is Karina Guadalupe and I am 20 years old. I work for a non-profit called Pogo Park, occasionally work with Richmond Youth Media and write for Richmond Pulse. Still undecided about my future goals but like to believe I’m heading down the right path. While I’m not too fond of school, I love learning new things and will try anything once. Well….almost anything. I always try to look for the good hidden behind all the BS and try to keep a smile on my face. Family is everything to me.
