Kettin is 23 years old, was born and raised in Nicaragua. She moved to San Francisco from Nicaragua in 2018 due to the current crisis that her country experiences. In 2017 she got her bachelor’s degree in economics with a minor in small business and worked as a store manager back in her country.

The first time Kettin came to San Francisco, she realized the city has a serious homeless crisis. She was shocked to see the magnitude of traumas, mental diseases and addictions that these human beings are carrying with. The inequality is very visible and she wants to help reduce that gap.

She is very passionate about the empowerment of women, and she thinks helping women in situations of risk is part of our responsibility, so she wants to do her part.

“These homeless women are economically, politically, sanitarily and socially marginalized. We must not forget we are talking about human beings”.
