Eli Gramajo, Los Angeles, CA
Downtown Magnet High School
Eli has worked with Stop Tobacco Access to Kids Enforcement (STAKE) to combat the drug issue within his community. Eli explains that drugs only further distract youth because they already deal with “financial and family instability, gang violence, and low education levels.” Along with working with STAKE, Eli is also an avid volunteer. He is the Student Council vice president and treasurer for the California Scholarship Federation. Eli will graduate in the top 3% of his class.
