As a woman who is from a working-class family, Consuelo has experienced firsthand how important education is, and how many social and economic gaps it can bridge. She has reached out to high school students on the south side of Tucson to create a visual plan of where they want to go in life and to let them know they have millions of possibilities and options if they decide to follow through and work hard. Through interning for a State Senate campaign in Arizona, Consuelo actively recruited volunteers and interns, and, with their assistance, she helped to elect political officials who support education and the LGBTQ community.
