P.S. ARTS is happy to introduce Michele Ramirez, our new Program Coordinator with IOCA! Learn what she’ll be working on with us and hear her latest music and book suggestions.
Hello, my name is Michele Ramirez, and I am P.S. ARTS’ new Program Coordinator. I have invested most of my time in implementing/developing life enhancing programs for youth. I previously worked with after-school organizations serving youth from various backgrounds. I am a firm believer that each child, no matter their socioeconomic status, deserves an opportunity to access arts education, and I’m very excited to join the P.S. ARTS team, which takes pride in doing just that. I hope to positively impact our youth, be able to expand their horizons, and empower their creativity here at P.S. ARTS.
What book is currently on your nightstand?
The House on Mango Street by Sandra Cisneros. I read this book in high school but I recently decided to re-read it. It’s nice being able to understand it from a different perspective now that I’m older and can find some similarities between it and my life. For sure a book that has made me cry, smile, and feel hopeful.
What is currently the most played song you’ve been listening to?
Lately, I’ve been listening to Bad Bunny’s new album Un Verano Sin Ti. If I had to choose my most played song from the album I would say it’s “Ojitos Lindos”.
Where is your favorite place to view or take part in art in Los Angeles?
I enjoy going to FIDM’s Museum and admiring all the intricate pieces they have on display.
What famous person, either dead or alive, would you choose to take out for coffee?
Salma Hayek, obviously. We love a successful, fashionable, and proud Latina.
Thank you Michele! We’re excited to have you on board as we continue to expand P.S. ARTS’ reach to new schools and communities. To learn more about our Staff, Board, and Faculty click here.
