Immigration & Environment
Originally from Los Cabos, Mexico, Carla is an actress, model, Co-Founder of Earth Angels, and in the final stages of becoming a certified medical interpreter. After traveling the world for years as a model, Carla moved to Los Angeles where she became an avid volunteer while pursuing a career in acting. The success of multiple community service projects she co-directed, along with the support of her peers, led to the creation of Earth Angels, a non-profit dedicated to simplifying the volunteer process.
WHAT MATTERS TO ME:
As someone who considers the US my home after having grown up in another country, immigration is something that is close to my heart. I truly believe that the more we are in touch with each other personally and physically, and in ways that serve our community, the more unlikely it is to be hateful towards others different from ourselves. My hope is that the more we engage with one another’s experience living in this country, the healthier we will all face the reality of our societal problems and find efficient solutions with facts and compassion.
