We are so proud of UFC alumna Florencia Valenzuela for her recent appointment as the First District’s commissioner for LA County’s Youth Commission! The Commission offers youth with a history in the child welfare system an opportunity to address fundamental challenges based on their lived experiences. Flo isn’t the first UFC alumna to make her way over to LA’s Youth Commission — another UFC alumnus, Alain J. Datcher, whom we featured as the Foster Care Hero of the Month earlier this year, serves as their Executive Director. Congrats, Flo! We know you’ll continue to do great things for the foster community in your new position.
