Meet JP from YAO-Los Angeles

By JP Erickson

Young Ambassador JP from YAO-Los Angeles

Hi! I'm JP from YAO-Los Angeles!

I live in Los Angeles and work for various film and television companies. I started out as a Production Assistant, but have been quickly making my way through the ranks. My most recent shows have both been on the Food Network: Cutthroat Kitchen & Next Food Network Star. I hope to continue working in the production world as long as opportunities keep presenting themselves.

I spend my free time working at church doing youth ministry, leading bible studies, and helping out with various A/V tasks. If I manage to squeeze any more hours out of a day, you'll find me watching any and every movie or playing board games. I am a Young Ambassador because I believe in Opportunity's holistic approach to microfinance. It's not just a loan-it's a completely changed mindset.
