This year JLLA is sharing personal stories from our members about why they have joined, why they continue their membership and what being a member means to them. Thank you Erica Ford for sharing!
I was born and raised in Southern California but briefly left for a job opportunity in Arizona. Upon moving back, I learned about the Junior League and all of the great opportunities it has to offer. I have always been passionate about helping people and being active in my community, but the Junior League offers so much more. It’s incredible to be surrounded by such impressive, ambitious and strong women.  I am so excited to be a part of the League this year, and I look forward to a lasting JLLA career complete with new friendships, personal and professional growth, all while making a difference in our Los Angeles community. In these few short months, the League has given me the opportunity to lead by example and inspire the young women in my life to do something life fulfilling.
