Yee -Ha 2017 Bridges An African OLL Graduate With The People Of Tujunga
As editor and publisher of The Immigrant Magazine, I not only get the chance to explore the beautiful and diverse cultures that make up the fabric of the USA but also to represent and bring resources to communities. It is in this spirit therefore that while working on outreach on behalf of the newly opened Comprehensive Community Healthcare Centers, Sunland (CCHC Sunland) I noticed a carnival coming up in Tujunga close to CCHC and just could not resist attending. Sure enough I felt at home because this experience took me home to my roots in Africa where I attended and graduated from Our Lady of Lourdes girl’s secondary school in Cameroon. The Principal of OLLS, Jennifer Reynaga and her team certainly exhibited nothing but complete dedication in serving this great Sunland community. To top it all up the people I met were warmhearted and fun to be around. A three day event, I am glad to say I had a great time listening to great country music from the band JB And The Big Circle Riders and the kids who I couldn’t help but notice how expertly they danced to the electric slide.
Thanks for making my Sunday afternoon a day to be remembered. All the images we took are compliments of CCHC Sunland. Please share this valuable resource with family and friends who may be in need of healthcare services. Find out more about this 40year old culture at OLLS.
