My Top 3 Priorities

  • A Just Economic Recovery from COVID-19
  • Housing as a Human Right
  • BLM: Community Safety & Justice for All



I am a proud daughter of Hayward, born and raised. Thanks to the influence of my hard working mother, I received a degree in the History of Public Policy from UC Santa Barbara. Like many others, I returned home unable to afford living here on my own. Now, I spend every day serving Hayward tenants, addressing their housing and eviction issues as a Tenants’ Rights Paralegal. 

For many years, Hayward residents have struggled with high rents and unjust evictions, and these hardships will only increase due to COVID-19. As your new City Council member, I would continue my fight to meet community needs with the urgency they deserve. In Hayward, working people deserve housing security, worker protections, true community safety, and above all, to be heard. I am committed to the needs of the Hayward community and this is why I am running a clean campaign endorsed by Aisha Wahab, IFPTE Local 20 and IFPTE Local 21. 


It’s time to break the status quo we have long seen in Hayward of rubber-stamping outdated policies due to a lack of term limits and limited new voices. I will change this by bringing on another strong voice for the people to the council. In order to make any real progress in Hayward, I would appreciate your vote.
