Grace is the Program Assistant. Though born in Pleasanton, California, Grace has been raised in Modesto for her whole life. She currently attends Modesto High School where she will be a IB senior during the 2022-23 school year. Born to an immigrant mother, she has always had a passion for helping the disadvantaged and saw an opportunity to do just that when Love Stanislaus County offered an internship to high school students.

When not at Love Stanislaus or working on school work, Grace writes articles for the organization the Journals of Justice. She loves to read and play music whether it be on the piano or guitar.
