LLA Cohort 10
Daisy Castro
Teatro Visión Board

As part of the newest LLA Leadership Cohort, the 2020 Cohort 10, Daisy Castro joined the board of directors for Teatro Visión in July 2020. Daisy Castro grew up in Gonzales, California a small town in the Central Coast surrounded by agriculture. She is the first in her family to complete college, graduating from San Jose State in 2018 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Management.

She first became passionate about helping her community when she discovered the structural – inequities that inhibit economic advancement for immigrant and low income families. Her commitment to close the racial wealth gap has brought her to Excite Credit Union where she provides financial literacy workshops to the community, primarily focusing on families and students in East San Jose. She also helps lead a youth savings initiative which allows low income families to start saving for their children’s future.

She is very excited to be joining Teatro Vision’s board because she knows how important storytelling is in our communities.
