Luna Bella Avila, Youth and Alumni Engagement, The Thinkubator
Luna Bella Avila spent her formative years in the Lower East Side of Manhattan- surrounded by artists, educators, revolutionaries, and warriors. She witnessed the appropriation, and eventual gentrification, of that community and intends to actively fight to prevent the same from happening in the BX. Her approach to developing youth and community leaders is built upon the ideal that one must share widely the tools for social justice. She currently resides in the Highbridge with her family of monstruos and menagerie of animals."
