Rachel: Education is the golden ticket

I’ve always said, whatever area I was involved with or wherever my office was, I want to give back to that community.

When I was in school, we didn’t even have pre-school, and nowadays, it’s so important for children to get a pre-school education.

Vinci Park. It’s a beautiful school.

I had the opportunity to meet the principal of Vinci Park School, and I asked her the question, “What can I do to help?” And she had mentioned that she has dreams of opening a pre-school for the children in that area, because they didn’t have one available for them.

So we started getting people together, other leaders in the community. And we started asking for help.

And with a lot of hard work, we opened up the doors. And we see all those little kids there.

I really believe education is that golden ticket, because many of these kids are from first generation Americans.

And having the environment of having a pre-school, it just builds their confidence that anything is possible.
