Hello everyone, my name is Brandon Cipriano and I am 21 years old. I am from the Bay Area, specifically Richmond. I recently transferred to University of California Davis to study Sustainable Environmental Design. The Latino Heritage Internship Program gave me the opportunity to work as an intern at Fort Point & the Presidio here in San Francisco. Some of my tasks in the Presidio are to give out background information of the site and how it served as an army post for three nations. World and local events, from military campaigns to World Fairs and earthquakes, left their mark. Also, I will interpret centuries of architecture to tourists, reflect in a national cemetery, walk along an historic airfield, through forests or to beaches, and admire spectacular vistas.

Thank you Latino Heritage Internship Program for this opportunity that helped me get out of my comfort zone. I never thought of being part of a program like this!
