Growing up in KTown Was a Lot of Fun

Brenda Hernandez

My goal is to become the best grant writer in Los Angeles. My work is an attempt to give back to my community. I come from a working class background, and I’m the only one in my family to have graduated from college. I put myself through UC Berkeley with hard work, grants, and student loans.

I’m a lifelong Metro rider. I grew up in Koreatown and started taking the bus in 1990. Growing up in KTown was a lot of fun.
