Alicia is very
passionate about social and environmental justice. That is why it is no mistake
that she has been working at Friends of the Children for 16 years. She has
always loved the long-term consistency that Friends provide. It takes time to
build relationships and this program allowed that to happen.
As a mentor, she was
able to walk beside her youth through all of the milestones and continued to do
so even when they became alumni. Experiencing new things together and learning
from each other was the best thing about being a mentor.
Alicia is from Boise
and graduated from Boise State University. She enjoys reading, hiking,
traveling, cooking, and eating. She enjoys traveling by the lake or the ocean
with her partner and kiddo.
