Hey there! My name is Lalo Vera and I will be a sophomore for the 2018-2019 school year. I graduated from Area Career Center University back in my hometown of Hammond, Indiana. I am double majoring in arts management and nonprofit management & leadership with a minor in theatre and drama. After graduation, I would love to pursue a path in the television industry as an actor, after I get my nonprofit organization up and running smoothly. I am currently a programming intern for the Balfour Scholars Program. I coordinate academic and personal events and services each month for minority students providing resources and social programs to help them engage with other students and professions. I also have a passion for being a mentor at Balfour and FASE, where I will motivate you to become an achiever. I will also serve as one of the two MAP apprentice coordinators and hope you come and join to see what it takes to be a mentor:) I am a 21st Century, Balfour, and Groups scholar. This summer, I will be helping with the Balfour Pre-College Academy for a week, and work with IN Kids. I look forward to working with you as your mentor!
