Meet the Fellows: Ben

Hi my name is Benjamin Gonzalez and I love providing unity to teams through screen printed apparel. I want to use my screen printing business to support unsheltered people. In Lak’ech can be interpreted as “I am you, and you are me.” My team is made up of myself , My fiancée Megan fernandez, and my mentor Kate Spacek.

I’m from the diverse city Oakland, CA and attended college at Cal State East Bay from 2013-2016. I am currently figuring out the steps towards my Bachelors Degree. The organization I work with is Youth Impact Hub. I’ve been working with this amazing team for about three months now.

At In Lak’ech Productions I create custom screen-printed apparel while supporting unsheltered people with the clean proper clothing and showing caring support that they need. I believe everyone needs someone, and with teamwork anything is possible.

The person that supported me to make this enterprise was my loving and caring fiancée. Ever since I met her she always worried about the unsheltered community and how she wishes to make a change to help all individuals. She is the most loving and caring person towards all individuals. She tends to put others first and worry about herself last. Seeing her go out of her way to buy food and clothing for people is incredible. I am one lucky person to find a such a loving individual like her.

The changes that I am looking for from my enterprise is teamwork and Oakland love. Giving is the key towards achieving and with the support of Oakland community, organizations and other supporters, we have the ability to make a new revolution.
