Life in our marvelous Central California was not easy for those of us Mexicans having to be farm labor due to the Bracero Program.   Angelina C. Contreras, mother, was highly traumatized, never to recover, and is bitter to this day.

Why?

Raw discrimination.  She was born an American citizen yet mistreated and told she had to work in the field. Her mom would tell her to keep her face down so the patron would not recognize her age.

Angelina refused to be sold, traded for supplies, furnishings or money as she had watched her older sister being given to an older man. This women of color, independent thinker, made a radical move to save herself, at 14, by leaving home in 1947. No longer would she endure her step father's beatings,  continued enslavement to work in the fields and not being allowed to attend school. 

​​
 ​ Angelina Contreras 1949 -Age 16   Babysitting to earn her keep. ​​

 Graduate FCC 1985- Certified In Home Health Care 

Myself I worked in the grape fields of Fresno from nine years of age to 13. My Dad resuced me, after grape picking season, arranging a part time position at the Hacienda Hotel as the first busgirl & hat check for banquet events.  I had shared with him I wanted to attend college and study psycology or business. 

This was the year Woodstock was the go to concert, first time I attended YWCA summer Camp, brought a mini skirt and began modeling school and started high school, 1969.  I started with high hopes not knowing what might happen along this tough journey... graduating from CSU Fullerton with a BA in 2005.  I was one of three 50+ year old's, the only returing student after a 18 years break... life and responsiblities get in the way... one must keep ​their own promises. 

The journey story later, along the way I did complete vocational training in 1980-81. As an executive secretary I worked for a special interest coporation in downtown L. A.. This helped pay  for living expenses as  I attended Paralegal courses, graduating from Rio Hondo with a certified AS degree in 1986.  Being a curious person I didn't stop learning other skills through on-the-job training and shadowing a few encouraging executives.

My father had a great interest in photography and Hollywood, since he began working as a bus boy at the Brown Derby. Dad progressed being invited to work  as apprentice waiter at the Coconut Grove in the 50's. Yes, he served Eddie Fisher, Liz Taylor & Marilyn all the beautiful people of this era, he even attended an Academy Awards ceremony. This was my first impression of photography and film... many stories. 
Know a small amount of encourgament and support goes a life time.  You don't need a bunch of fancy equipment and million dollar phd's just your own focus to achieve goals.

Our

Yo Soy Neighborhood, Fresno Talk Show is a representation of our major languages and districts in Fresno CA.  Most of us have two jobs plus school. Our Public servants ask for our opinons, and then we have the  "other folks" who without concern of the majority have designated themselves as ultimate decisionmakers. We long term Taxpaying Stakeholders are and should be directing the future of Fresno and Central California. We the community need to speak up to guarantee our precious hard-earned dollars get applied to the issues affecting our neighborhoods.  ​​​​

Live Stream Talk Show  ​​
Yo Soy! Neighborhoods, Fresno 

The Discovery Center is a playground for the mind where visitors of all ages can engage, interact and ponder. Education involves active participation which is why we offer a wide array of events and exhibitions that range from celebrational to educational, targeting both adult audiences and the entire family. We invite you to peruse our upcoming schedule and plan a special day with us.

Our Museum exhibits highlight Fresno culture and has been designed to nurture visitors scientific imaginations, build their confidence and competence, and encourage them to test, tinker, create, and wonder! Our exhibit philosophy responds to a persons need to learn through concrete interactions — touching, exploring, manipulating, experimenting and hands-on learning.

Mission: We are a community-based educational history and science center offering the children and citizens hands-on learning experiences to stimulate passion, curiosity and wonder for the sciences and our environment.
