The city officially named April 17, 2018 as "Geena the Latina Day" in San Diego! The president of the San Diego City Council (at the time) Myrtle Cole said this, “We are so excited to proclaim a day for GEENA,” said COLE. “Not only does she give so much back to the girls in the community, but she also brightens our mornings on the radio.”
“I am beyond honored to receive an official day here in SAN DIEGO,” said GEENA. “Never in my wildest dreams would I have imagined that I’d receive such an award. I have lived in SAN DIEGO for almost 13 years now and it has become my home. From day one, everyone here has welcomed me with open arms and supported me. I have had a chance to meet so many of our wonderful CHANNEL 93.3 listeners and you guys have always been so nice and welcoming and for that I am truly grateful.”
GEENA has been through more than most in her young life, having had two teenage brothers killed due to gang violence, which is why she has such a strong passion for the inner city youth of her community.
