Little Manila Rising is an non-profit organization in Stockton, Calif. servicing primarily the South Stockton community. After a recent youth conference produced by Little Manila youth, Emil Guillermo talked with Celine Lopez, a newly-minted Stanford graduate, who hopes to use her senior thesis in Urban Studies as a foundation for policy-making in her hometown. Celine talks about how she rediscovered her pride and self-worth as a Stocktonian at Stanford and how that fueled her desire to return to the Central Valley.
She talks about how she wants to reverse the brain drain, and help restore the day when Stockton seemed to be the hub of life.
