DSAOC Self-Advocates, Angel Mesa & Nate Erskine are “In The Spotlight”

Angel Mesa

angel-mesa-rszdMy name is Angel Mesa. I am 17 years old and a senior at Tustin High School. I work in the office at school with Mrs. Hogue “Boss Lady”. Mrs. Hogue has taught me so much while working side by side with her. I like going to football games, cooking and playing with my dogs at home. When I turn 18 years old, I want to volunteer at an animal shelter. I play soccer and basketball with the Tustin Tigers.  Coach Jim is my coach and he is the best! I can’t wait for the new season to start.

Recently, I have been selected as a “Princess” for the Tustin High School Homecoming Court. I love being part of this very special event and if I win, it will be a dream come true!
