Jessica Sedo was born in Lima, Peru, and moved to California as a child. When she was a teenager she moved to North Carolina. She went to Salem College for Business Administration. Since then she has been on the boards of multiple organizations including the Forsyth Humane Society. And now, she is a coordinator for the Hispanic League, a non-profit organization that helps Hispanics in our community. WFDD Radio Camper Adria Faulkner finds out more.

 
Jessica was wearing a beautiful black and white dress and had her hair in a neat bun. As she walked up she seemed happy and excited. As we sat down I asked her what the Hispanic League is.
    
The Hispanic League is a non-profit here in Forsyth County, Winston Salem, so we serve
the county and the city in terms of scholarship awards so our main thing is scholarship[s] -
Hispanic League scholarships that we raise money for the Hispanic community in Forsyth
county, so the students have had to have gone to school here in Forsyth county and taken part in the ESL program to qualify.
 
She has been doing a lot for our community and we talked about what she wanted people to know. She wanted people to know this about the Hispanic League.
 
We need your support. We are looking for ways to participate in the community. We have a
lot of events and stuff like that, so they should definitely stay posted. We love everything that everyone else does. We don't just do Latino, Hispanic activities. We have Fiesta coming up which is an amazing event and it’s a perfect opportunity to try to immerse yourself in the culture, especially the culture of Winston Salem, Forsyth County Hispanic, Latino community. There's food, there’s all this, like, cool music. We've got some fun new activities happening this year that are pretty different.
 
Not only does she serve our community through the Hispanic League, she also helps through fighting for animal justice in Forsyth County. To learn more about the Hispanic League go to their website at hispanicleague.org
