Challenge Day

Losa Lelea

Program Facilitator

About Me:

Losa was born in Daly City, California where she lived with her mother and grandparents. She traveled with her grandmother, parents and uncles who played Zydeco music and spent many times backstage eating the host of complimentary foods, dancing to her grandmother’s music on stage where her dream of doing something began.

Losa’s parents divorced, and her mother remarried to her stepfather who played an integral role in her life. They moved to Lawtell, Louisiana where she learned more about her French Creole culture, rode horses, and went on trail rides every weekend.

Losa relocated back to California and spent most of her time learning the depth of her Samoan Culture. At the age of 25 she decided to embark on a journey of self-discovery. She has worked in Substance Use Treatment Centers as an admissions assistant then became counselor for a host of years and switched roles and became a case manager working with the Homeless population.

Losas’ dear friend introduced her to Challenge Day and was able to attend one where her dream to work here was born. She applied during the pandemic and a year later was asked to reapply where her journey with the Challenge Day team is now a reality!
