This episode kicks off our I love the Bell-Side Series where we interview Montbello youth who are transitioning or have recently transitioned into the post-secondary life, headed to college, taking a gap year, working on art starting a business or any other dope venture Montbello youth want to take on. We hope to learn about their experiences growing up in Montbello, things they love and things they would like to change about the community.
Throughout COVID and the Black Lives Matter movement, Montbello youth have stepped up in many ways to serve the community and we hope to amplify their voices through these episodes.
To kick things off we will hear from Isaura Ibarra. Isaura’s family moved to Montbello when she was 10 years old and attended John H. Amesse Elementary, shout out the road runners, and recently graduated from Northfield High School. Being from Ft. Morgan, Isaura learned many crucial lessons from folx in Montbello and established her identity through those experiences. She is an avid advocate for Montbello Youth and is especially passionate about reshaping education experiences for youth in the community. This episode will make you laugh, cry and fill you with inspiration from one of the Bell-Sides greatests.
