Cristela Reyes Administrative Assistant

Cristela joined E4E because she knows first-hand the struggle underprivileged students K-12 face trying to access higher education. A byproduct of the LAUSD school system, she wants to be a part of an organization that's committed to closing the educational gap by empowering teachers and staff who are trying to change that. “This matters to me because it's helping the community I am a part of. E4E's mission is a mission I really care about.” 

In her most recent role as Office Manager and Executive Assistant at Latino Public Broadcasting (LPB), Cristela helped the Executive Director facilitate successful executive board meetings and fundraising initiatives interested in bringing Latinx stories to the forefront. She also worked closely with the Managing Director to ensure staffing and operational needs were met. Prior to LPB, Cristela was an Assistant Language Teacher through the Japan Exchange Teaching Program (JET). Now, a JET Alumni and Secretary Officer, she spends her time outside of work supporting JET teacher returnees reacclimate to Los Angeles life.

“Actions speak louder than words. I am ready to bring my world experience home and make a difference."
