I am the daughter of a freedom fighter and a Black Panther ,service to my community and activism is deeply ingrained into who I am. My name is Stepheny Estes and I have been involved in student government since high school. I have been active in every college I have
attended. This is at San Diego State University. This includes Mt.. San Jacinto College where I currently attend classes. I have served as a student Senator on our SGA for three semesters. I simultaneously maintained the South- Eastern Regional Chair position with the Black Caucus of Community Colleges. I now serve as the Vice President of the Black Caucus of California Colleges. I also served as the President for our college Black Student Union for two years.
In addition to attending classes I also am the sole owner of Second Glances Custom Portraits and Design. I started it twenty years ago and have survived as a freelance artist since. I am also working on an Art mentorship program as my first non-Profit. I am a member of the Board with Sisters with Success Non-Profit as their Community Liaison and Event Planning Director. I am continuing my education to add a Ph.D in Psychology focusing on diagnosis,treatment, and recovery through Art Therapy.
