After her year of AmeriCorps service, Raquél continued to work for Smith Hill CDC as their Community Outreach Supervisor, where she trained the next AmeriCorps members and facilitated community connections. Raquél aspires to one day run for Congress using her experiences in the nonprofit, for-profit, and healthcare sectors, to be a representative for all.
