Community Connections: Meet Valerie M.


I am in 12th grade and I attend Mountain View High

The most important thing to know about me is that I love my friends, music, chocolate. Everyone if not most people know that I have an obsession over owls and chocolate. I can be very loud when I get comfortable with my surroundings which is most of the time. My friends are very important to me.

For me I can call many places home because I've lived in many different cities but currently I do live in El Monte. I live fairly close to the San Gabriel River, about 3 blocks.

The first place I would take a new visitor to El Monte is Art's Burgers and the last place would be near or in the mobile homes.

An object that connects me to my neighborhood is a leaf from my tree. It links me to my community because there are many trees that surround El Monte and everywhere you go you can see green trees.
