AJ Noriega is the President and Founder of Chicana Dreams Car Club. With honor, She identifies as a third-generation Chicana coming from the East Side of San Jose. AJ was born into a family of dedicated mothers, hard-working fathers, and siblings who loved her unconditionally. She loves embracing her culture, celebrating her traditions, and empowering her community. Throughout AJ’s childhood, she was traumatized by being placed in and out of the system. As an adult, she has dedicated her life to supporting others in hopes to end systematic oppression.
In January 2022, AJ had the opportunity to learn about the YWFC and from then on, she became an advocate. In her position, she is able to make a difference in a radical way; AJ dreams big and stands tall for her sisters who carry generations of trauma within.
