"I realize water connects to every aspect of life.Growing up in a community along the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta, my fondest memories are those by the water. The Delta and Lodi Lake were regular meeting places for family outings. As I develop a deeper understanding of the Delta and California’s water system, I realize water connects to every aspect of life. I hold that with me and prioritize carrying on my family’s tradition of spending time by the water, and, in turn, am fueled for my work of advocating for and supporting clean water for all."
