Constance came to Genesys Works because of her passion for mentoring young people of color in the Twin Cities area. This passion was inspired by her upbringing. She was raised in a community of women of color who believed in her leadership. They gave her the opportunity to facilitate group discussions and trainings at 9 years old. This gave her hope and a leg up compared to her peers. She hopes to pay that forward in her new role. She moved from Oakland, California to Minnesota for love and has since fallen in love with the state, and yes, that includes the weather. Constance graduated from Saint Mary’s
College of California as an East Asian Studies Major.
