HILDA HERRERA was born on 5/2/96 in San Francisco. She is recently a student at City Art & Technology and is involved with Progressive Grounds/14 Black Poppies. She first encountered Progressive Grounds/14 Black Poppies because of her WLE, in other words community service that she required to do for her junior and senior year at C.A.T. Hilda said " Working as an intern at Progressive has taught me so much about culture and the true meaning of art and music based on the performance I've witnessed here. Being an Intern here has helped me improve my people skill and technology skill as well." She has been able to learn these skills throughout the years spent at C.A.T and has been able to apply them at Progressive Grounds/14 Black Poppies.
Hilda is also a musician and has been playing acoustic guitar for over three years now which has also been a great addition to her life and great full for the inspiration she has been able to create with music. She has also been playing soccer since she was five and has been involved with soccer ever since because it as well as music is her passion.
Well, I want to start off by saying "I'm LEONARD COVARRUBIUS III." I was born in San Francisco California, and I'm 22 years old. I was born at 8:01 in the morning on March 20, 1990, and I have two sisters that are younger and one younger brother. Yes, I'm the oldest out of four, and we all have the same mother and father.
One of my hobbies is writing poems. I love to write down whatever is on my mind. I also love to watch football. My favorite team is the Niner's of course, and I love to play basketball. I'm also a father myself with a three year old boy. He's going to be four on Cinco Dey Mayo. I love being a dad. I try to do as much as I can for my son everyday. He lives with his mother but i try to see him almost everyday.
I love working at Progressive Grounds/14 Black Poppies. The things that I do here actually help me with the hobbies and empowers me to elevate to the next level with my writing.
