“Working with the California Community Foundation allows me to give back to the causes I hold dear such as education, homelessness and social justice.”
— Apryll Nakamura

APRYLL NAKAMURA

I came to Los Angeles to help my 94-year-old godmother as she was getting older, but I found a true love for this city—its diversity and vibrancy resonate with me. As a young engineering student at UCLA, who was working several jobs to put herself through college, I encountered many challenges. Those challenges were made easier with the kindness of people like Professor Joseph DiStefano. His kindness had a profound impact in my life and helped fuel my determination to finish my degree and go on to become an engineer. Working with the California Community Foundation allows me to give back to the causes I hold dear such as education, homelessness and social justice.
