Gemma Sanchez-Contreras (she/her)

Gemma joined the Dream Team as a Bachelor Level Clinical Intern in August 2021. She is pursuing her Bachelor of Social Work degree from Metropolitan State University of Denver and has an Associate of Arts degree from Colorado Mountain College and is originally from Jalisco, Mexico. As a Dreamer in the DACA program herself, Gemma is passionate about ensuring youth and families have support so they can achieve their goals and feel confident that they can achieve anything they set their mind to!

Gemma is committed to equitable treatment within relationships and is excited to be part of the Dream Team and ensure youth and families’ needs are met to ensure they have all the opportunities to thrive.

When Gemma is not elevating the voices and experiences of young people, she is a huge advocate for self-care and enjoys going to the gym. She recognizes that if she doesn’t care for herself, she cannot care for others.
