"I can close my eyes, see myself running down the street playing, and having family over. It's family, it's a community, it's home,” said Sanchez, as she is no stranger to the ins and outs of the Bronx community.
Sanchez is an Afro-Dominican born in University Heights.
She tells News 12 more about her journey and her desire to work for the people.
