Peer 1 on 1 has always struck me as a heartening organization that has been dedicated to helping children who suffer from autism, and I really respect all the effort and work put in by the members to really help them. It’s an influential motive and I genuinely love helping these children construct their transmission and communication skills. It’s an honor and always will be to partake in such an inspiring cause and truly be able to make a difference in my community.
I am a senior at Arcadia High School. I joined Peer 1 on 1 in 2020 and it has brought me more joy and a greater sense of purpose since then. I am passionate about advocating for the Neurodivergent community and helping us all experience more compassion and understanding in our lives. My favorite part of the organization is the monthly get-together activities I plan with the San Gabriel Branch members.
I'm a junior at South Pasadena High School. I've been playing piano and singing since I was really little. I believe that music is boundless and can reach hearts that words couldn't. Being a part of Peer 1 on 1, I'm both excited and honored to help those with autism. Working alongside my peers, I hope to spread happiness through music and see smiles bloom on each beautiful face.
Public Relationship Director
I'm a senior at Arcadia High School. She has been volunteering for Peer 1-on-1 since her sophomore year. Christina cherishes the fond memories she has made with students with autism, whether it be reading short stories online, or helping them make crafts and play games at social events. Through Peer 1-on-1, she has had the privelege of forming new friendships with her team and peers. Volunteering for Peer 1-on1 is always a joy!
I love Peer 1 on 1 for the interactions and opportunities it provides, for both the kids and volunteers. In my opinion, there is no better exercise for the heart than lifting others up.
