That’s when he decided to get involved with Latinos Unidos of York. He wants to raise awareness about the growing Latino population and help connect those in need with services they might not know about.
Lloyd was born in the U.S. and speaks fluent English, but he feels compassion for the many people in York who don’t.
“They don’t have the same opportunities because of that one thing: of not being able to communicate on that level,” he says.
He’s been helping with events like First Friday Latino — a celebration of the Latino community in York.
“It’s great to see so many cultures and ethnicities coming together,” he says, “and everybody likes salsa dancing.”
Lloyd wants to be a role model, to show kids in his community an example of positivity.
And he hopes others will stand up and do the same.
