Rosalina Lopez: 2023 Corpsmember of the Year!

Updated: Mar 16, 2023

"Rosalina has been the example of a Corpsmember success story since the beginning.”

Despite facing adversity, Rosalina is constantly uplifting her community with her can-do attitude and perseverance. While taking care of two daughters as a single mother, she has helped improve her community’s green spaces by working on various vegetation management projects this past year.

She has been described as “a staple and influence for other women in the organization by leading by example.” Not only did she encourage her team with endless support and lead the way for various community improvement projects, but she was also able to earn her driver’s license and become a U.S. citizen, all while raising two daughters.

Rosalina was invited to Washington, DC, where she received her award and gave an inspirational speech.

Rosalina is still serving as a Corpsmember while also working as a translator at a law office. She is currently working to become a certified translator. Due to her work with SJCC+CS, Rosalina was connected to various new experiences and skills that have given her the confidence to accomplish her goals. “I’m really thankful that I joined the Corps because I got the help that I needed in order to get my citizenship, driver’s license, OSHA-10, CPR, and chainsaw certifications. These will all help me in my future job opportunities.” With her newfound skills and experiences, Rosalina plans to apply for permanent city or park maintenance jobs. She also has aspirations of becoming a medical assistant.

Congratulations Rosalina! We are so proud of you and all the hard work you've done and continue to do for our community! Your achievements and leadership encourage us all to reach higher levels of service.
