Portrait of Bryan-1

Bryan was a Senior Licensed Vocational Nurse (LVN) at David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA. He was from East Los Angeles, California, USA, but went to Azusa High School in Azusa, California. He was 27 years old and had been forklift driver at a warehouse and in a chocolate factory, in addition to a part-time LVN in Hospice care.

Bryan was an LVN for three years, but his job at UCLA was his first full time job as an LVN after completing his studies at LAUSD – East Los Angeles Occupational Center, located specifically in Boyle Heights.

Bryan liked working at UCLA. It was the best job he had in his life, not only in terms of workplace, and not only because it was intellectually stimulating, but also because the people he worked with were wonderful. “This is such a blessing, Bryan admitted. “Never did I think i would work here. I get to meet interesting people, interesting characters, like you.”
