COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT

Rivera has volunteered at Ronald McDonald house, and the Mission to help feed the homeless through the Sprit of Christ Church in Arvada. Rivera is a member of the Confirmation Group where she serves as a youth leader. Rivera is also part of the Chicana Youth Leadership program, where she has talked about seatbelt safety at the Dragonboat Festival in Denver. She has also passed out flyers for voter registration.

WHY IS COMMUNITY INVOLVMENT IMPORTANT?

“Because I think in general community involvement is about collaboration instead of competition and that we should help each other out instead of tear each other down.”

IF I COULD IMPROVE THE WORLD I WOULD…

“I would help people understand one another’s differences and what other peoples’ passions are, helping understand cultures and traditions and why it’s important to them.”
